I would like to start off saying that I am not sure if I should be posting this question here. I have used Slackware Linux as my main Operating System since I was 10, and I know my way around the system much better than any other; however, I will be attending University of Texas for Engineering this upcoming fall, and I am not sure if I should keep Slackware or switch to Windows. Although I could easily use Wine or a Virtual Box, I don't know if that would hinder performance in college, and the last thing I want to be is a burden to partners in, or out, of class. I feel that using most distributions of GNU/Linux would be fine, but, for the sake of a mind at ease, I feel getting others opinions would help. So, is keeping Linux fine, or should I move to Windows? Again, I am very sorry if I posted this question in the wrong section.
