My son just came to me saying he couldn't use Linux for the online course he's taking this summer because the image editor was only available for Windows and Mac.

Turns out the teacher only had links to the Windows and Mac downloads of GIMP.

@ted @freakazoid I had a class that required using ssh so the professor linked to puTTY. Cue all my Mac-using classmates installing a windows VM to be able to run it


@ted @freakazoid (meanwhile I was trying and failing to get mosh running in userspace on the school servers...)
