    So I need Cadence OrCAD for an assignment. FUCK. No Linux package available. Alright... Windows workstation it is. So I turn it on. This is where a list of shit starts:
    1. Booting takes ages.
    2. Before allowing me to login, it has to configure itself for another 5 minutes.
    3. After logging in, it takes another 5 minutes to "Prepare the desktop".
    4. I see my desktop, and I get yelled at by:
    - Adobe Updater (UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE)
    - Microsoft Lync (LOGIN LOGIN LOGIN)
    - Windows Update (UPDATE RESTART UPDATE RESTART)
    5. Suddenly a window pops up telling me it HAS TO start IE, for an unknown reason.
    6. I click the Start button, it doesn't load.
    7. After 30 seconds, it loads the menu, partially.
    8. After the menu finally loads, and closing all the fucking windows that popped up, I find that Cadence OrCAD is not installed.
    9. I enter my search string "network" to navigate to the "Install applications from the network" application.
    10. It takes 20 seconds before it returns any results.
    11. After opening the "Install applications from the network" application, it tells me that there are no applications available for installing. Nothing at all.
    12. I am unable to complete my assignment due to complete lack of competence of the IT derpartment of Windesheim UAS.

    So Windesheim:

    It never ceases to amaze me how teachers choose the shittiest software package available to them.

    What's wrong with FreeCAD?
    Tell them to use that.

    It's not that kind of CAD software. It's for circuit design, simulation n shit.

    Somewhere more than or equal to nowhere,
    My school is too cheap to pay for proper computing teachers, we have 1 but the rest are business teachers who know nothing about computers, one of these clowns actually believed that searching for Google broke the internet.

    Also some other twat let them take control of our computers, as a result we have 10 year old 833mhz laptops running windows XP professional.

    The Nicolaas Software Selector is horrible. Fritzing is unusable. I drag one part to my schematic and it crashes with a segmentation fault.

    I wanted to build from source because the Ubuntu package is outdated.
    So I tried checking out the source from the Git (Hah, more like Shit) repository. "fatal: Remote end hung up unexpectedly"

    Update: It seems that Windesheim sucks even more. You can choose between cloning a git repository through git or http. So through port 9418 or 80. Windesheim's nazi policy does not allow traffic through other ports than those whitelisted, which does not include 9418.

    Update: Building qucs from source is impossible.
