Hi all.

Had a lot of questions this week regarding Linux, and if you have to develop your project 
and do labs on Linux.

In short - no. You can do your labs on any OS of your choice. Linux will help significantly 
if you choose to deploy your application, as most providers use Ubuntu or other Linux 

Additionally, Python virtual environments, used by your project, will vary depending on 
Linux/Mac or Windows (Linux and Mac share the same venv structures, Windows has 'Scripts' 
rather than 'bin'). 

We don't require you to submit your virtual environment so using any operating system 
should be fine. With that being said, when you get to your project, make sure that it runs 
on Linux, as some of us will be using Linux to mark.
