Different Operating Systems

Last week I heard a student talking about the difficulties she had experienced in using Powerpoint on a Mac when she was used to using it on a Windows PC.

Later that day I talked to a non-technical colleague about this, and she said that she had never had the opportunity in her degree course to use Linux or Mac and that she wished she had.

Neither of these had studied at Reading, but it left me wondering if we should be offering our staff and students a chance to experience other operating systems then the one they use every day?
