Its still amazes me that as a computer scientist, I've
had no direct contact with a UNIX system of any kind
as part of my degree, apart from telnetting into a
Solaris server to run Oracle. I think that this has
been redressed now for students in the years below
mine as all of the ground floor SCIT [1] PCs dual boot
with SuSE now and there is a first year module using
Linux. I think this is mainly as a result of Peter
Burden's influence.

They also now have an old celeron machine acting as a
telnet gateway running Linux as of the last few
