My stupid college, though they have a small Red Hat lab, makes many deals with 
Microsoft.  In fact, my English teacher called it "a deal with the devil".  
I'm gonna be writing a paper soon on the open source movement.  Maybe I can 
get her to convert :) She already expressed an interest in OpenOffice.  As 
far as programming in Linux, I don't program too much, but I do recommend the 
book Linux Programming by Example, by Kurt Wall.  It highlights using make, 
gcc, ncurses, Berkeley DB, system calls, and other handy tidbits.
