	As far as I know, Pune University don't make a rule for any particular
operating system. You can implement most of the assignments in any
preferred language on any OS. There are sometimes exceptions like VB
programming or .NET which are OS specific.

	Mainly its the colleges which prefers "windows" due to lack of
knowledge/lack of experienced people in FOSS.

	I personally pushed for an FOSS lab while I was doing my engineering.
My department supported me very well for that. So its more of a lack of
enthusiasm/collective effort which is at the heart of propitiatory
softwares being used in colleges instead of FOSS.
