That's probably not what your school had in mind, ya know... :p :D
That is very true, I had to make my case before the head teacher to obtain the approval to do it. :D

You are correct, sadly, as far as I know I am the only Linux user in my class. :(

On the very rare occasions where I am computing in public, I like to open my terminal and run cmatrix if I see people peaking over my shoulder. I did this on an overseas flight and the person next to me ceased talking to me. It was a much better flight after that.

Hmm... I should do an article about the fun things you can do in the terminal.

DO IT!

Actually, if it were the real world and you a long-term buddy of mine, I'd have said, "You don't have the testicular fortitude to do it." Thus goading them into behavior they'd not necessarily have undertaken.

Also, I'd have used a different word than 'testicular fortitude', but I try to be PG13.

And there probably would have been wine or rum involved, now that I think about it.

Seriously, give it a shot. Linux on the desktop is very workable. If you haven't done so in a while, it's surprisingly easy to live in the Linux ecosystem.

My school has a room with some desktops (running Windows 7) where students can work on assignments. They are all set to the same wallpaper, and a regular user can't change it. Whenever I spin up a Linux live USB, people go "How did you change the wallpaper?!"

lol, if that's the case. We may become friends long term. lol. I don't keep many friends, but the ones I do. It's pretty abusive, but nobody takes offense because we all knew we would be victims in joining this crowd lol.

I goaded a buddy into wrecking his new(ish) GT350 bad enough that I'll never fully recover. It's a long story, but it ends with me smashing my femur and spending a long time recovering to the best of my ability. I was in the passenger seat. I don't drive intoxicated, but he had been. I goaded 'em well beyond their ability to control their car - sober or not.

Yeah, if you're gonna be in my inner circle, you'll appreciate (in both directions) a good ribbing and being competitive helps.
