That's a good point. My interests have pushed me in the direction of academia, however. Although it's not uncommon, from what I understand, for math and physics majors to get scientific software engineering jobs so maybe I'll get to see how I like the industry that way? :)

But I like your choice of Linux distributions.
I mostly use Linux because the BSD I've tried, OpenBSD, has some compatibility issues with the software I use (Steam, notmuch, real-time music software, etc.). However, I think I'm going to try FreeBSD and see if it has sufficient compatibility for me. I really like the BSD code style, documentation, and better apparent adherence to the UNIX philosophy so I hope FreeBSD works out for me. :)

He uses Linux on his old laptop but he still uses Windows on his main machine. Also, he doesn't really use the internet much so probably not but you never know. :)

Thanks for the welcome, everyone :)
