The ISG operates a large number of workstations running Linux, MacOS X and Windows. We call them Managed Workstations. You need a physics account to use them. Your files are automatically on our fileservers and backed up on a regular basis. Please also note the usage policy.
Two public rooms are equipped with Linux workstations:
In the room HPV F 7.1
you'll find 20 computers running Linux and a wide range of applications like mail clients, word processors, TeX and scientific applications. These computers are free for public use within the usage policy
while they're not being used for exercises.
You will find those workstations also in several institutes like Astro, ITP, IPP and Nano. Also our administration is using managed MacOS X.
