So I’m taking three software classes and two hardware classes this semester. I’ll be learning Ubuntu in my Unix and Software Design classes, along with Python, C, and Qt in Unix, Micro, and Software Design respectively. I’m not worried about my hardware classes (Electronics and the lab that goes with it). I’m going to do my best to make sure I don’t get overwhelmed early in the semester and try to keep up with the assignments.
So far Ubuntu seems pretty easy to use. I grew up using DOS, so it’s not a huge jump from using dir and help to using ls and man. I’m actually looking forward to learning more about Unix and I’m considering eventually switching my desktop over. If I don’t get too bogged down by all the programing, this semester could be a lot of fun.
