I've always been more interested in "down to the hardware"
details than in fluffy stuff like user interfaces

Which inspired me to create this graphic. (Thanks to Leigh Purdie for finding the penguin photo.)
Oh yeah, just to be crystal clear: these are my opinions, not anything official from the department, college, or university.
* Advice for tutors in computing courses, in particular those supervising lab sessions in programming.
* The need for One Frickin' User Interface for Linux.
At one time I'd have said urgent need, but Linux is well and truly deadlocked when it comes to GUIs and the situation I rant about here hasn't changed in years.
* Linux is for Wizards, Macintosh for Artists, and Windows for Muggles.
Which operating system is best for different types of people and in particular why software developers of all sorts need to learn Linux.
