I am way too old to be a graduate student but even if I was the one you could not bully me into using the tools I am not comfortable with. I am competent enough to code the application which I need if there is none already. I have been using Unix for too long (since late 1980s) not because it was free or not proprietary but because the alternative was VMS and lousy
OS/360. I do not hate Windows, its users, and M$.
Ditto, although in my case, I don't think the code part applies. I can do scripting and some Java, but hope to learn C/C++ in college. Then I do a real job and volunteer my time with these projects, but you said it very well.
