"if you were so inclined as to use it, so if you were desperate
to use unix there's nowt there to stop you"
Thats a bit harsh, I will a student in CIT when donncha was and at that time
there was 2 unix labs running off an IBM RS6000 or something similar, there
then went a period when there was no unix because they cleared the 2 labs to
make room for nt. Since the IT center has been in action, there has been
dual-booting machines with solaris and nt4 on them, which didnt work pretty
well simply because the techs hadnt enough experience in administering
solaris. Since then the techs were put on a course and this year there are
120 dual booting win2k and solaris machines.
However, i do think that there should be an additional "linux only" lab for
the purpose of projects, to try to get students to develop projects on a
linux platform, rather than good ol' visual J++ on NT4.

With one exception! There is a very good course there (typically I can't
remember the name now). Its the one sponsord by Cisco. I have a mate going
into 4th year in it atm. Very Cisco orientated (funnily enough), and there
is aparently quite a bit of Unix training too. Although not specifically
Linux, but I am told "this will be changing next year".

Probably better than CIT right now, but that's only because they have
Linux workstations and offer work placement. CIT has gone completely NT,
though you can telnet to an AIX box, or at least you could last year.
CIT offers work placement too which used to be touted as an advantage
over UCC. When it comes to UNIX development CIT is screwed IMO.. (yeah,
I went there, it's a great course otherwise!)
all the workstations have solaris on them (and some/one of the sparc servers
have/has something none nt5 running on them/it, presumably for use with
projects etc) if you were so inclined as to use it, so if you were desperate
to use unix there's nowt there to stop you,
that is EXCEPT YOU CAN'T LOG INTO THEM. (for 2 years)
quote "your nt username and password will work" via sys admin and various
the server bit is a guess at best, but i'm quite sure i'm right, i
definitely heard one of the lectures talk about it, i think. yeah
also the fading menus on win2000 are a beautiful sight to behold, well worth
the cost of 2000, until this in kde etc i will not be a happy man/monkey.
