Don't worry Luke, I set up her development machine, running native
debian 10.3 on bare-metal, like mine, when I set up my own. She has a
mac that she will most likely do part of the Elm work on, but she's not
planning on using her mac for HDL work as I have already set up the
proper development on a dedicated desktop.
