User:Sj/Log/toolchains, manuals, and compilers
Learning how to use your own machine means being able to use normal developer toolchains once you get down to a shell -- having man pages, syntax-highliting editors, and compiler toolchains available or hinted at should be a bare minimum. Learning to hack your system shouldn't require jumping through extra hoops that others would not have to. Alternately, there should be provisions in place to create space for students and teachers to set up services or do development on school servers. This and useful 'view source' keybindings are needed to start breaking into one's own systems and making interesting discoveries.
