Thank you, Renni for the document. I would also suggest that, when we
write, we can also suggest changes in the syllabus that would
introduce sensible alternative applications/software. For instance, I
thought it would be interesting and useful to teach some tools like
audacity, cinelerra and advanced image editing to, say, students of
Humanities, Octave, gnuplot and xmaxima (and maybe Python) to students
of Physics and Maths, and so on. Please give your suggestions.
