I went trough cse143 and my homework was done exclusevly on my Linux
laptop, my TA loved me because of that :). I can help you set up stuff,
since it's no big deal, once you have Java Installed you're halfway there
all you need is some text editor or if you want something fance go and get
jBuilder for Linux.

I am using windows in this case because I don't feel like doing the extra work that is required to make cse143 work in linux. Anyway, I like bash and I am wondering if there is something like it that will take the place of M$ DOS(besides cygwin, which looks like it costs more than $40, I forget the exact price). My google searches for such a thing haven't come up with much but that is probably just because I have not figured out the correct search words. The feature that I am particularly looking for is the ability to remember a few hundred lines of previous commands and program output and then be able to scroll back to it. This is available to later versions of MS Dos, but not the version that runs on win 98. Also, I would like to be able to recall more than one previous command and I really miss tab completion of file!
