In the last 10 years I have only hired people with *extensive* Linux
experience. Microsoft experience (with a few exceptions) is unimportant
for our work. When I get students or interns, the first thing they are
confronted with is a laptop with linux loaded on it, and a few pointers
to vim tutorials and bash/command line resources :-)

Linux experience is essential IMHO, and you are doing your students a 
favor for pressing them to learn it. Definitely!
