Everyone makes their own decisions, of course, but... I'd be explaining
that I couldn't use servantware for legal reasons (I can't agree to the
EULAs), and it'd either have to work with Linux, or I'd be looking
elsewhere for school. Running MS is simply not a legal option for me.
The only other alternative would be if /they/ could supply me whatever
computers, etc, to work with, that I wasn't responsible for (at that
level) and thus didn't have to worry about the EULA or the damage waivers
for. If someone else signs away their rights and lets me work on their
system, that's rather different than me signing away my rights on my own
system, something I cannot and will not do. That's how I can continue to
work on friend's systems and etc, and work systems if it came to it.
(Fortunately my current employer runs Novel Desktop Linux, tho of course
with their agreement with MS, that has its own issues, but again, that's
my employer taking responsibility not me, and I've never personally run
Novel/SuSE, so I haven't had to take a personal position on that one.)
