    Sadly just a dual core. Would be quad core if the cpu was current generation and not old.

    Today I'm getting my new lappy @work :) i7 gen8, 512G nvme, 32G ddr4. It's nice undeed to have such power.

    And I also asked to keep wind. filesystem as small as possible. To have more room for linux :)

    That's terrible. Windows 1?! Couldn't have at least upgraded you to 3.5 or something?!

    They gave you this beautiful thing and cut its legs by installing windows. Get some proper os on that thing asap.

    Ps sorry i had to.

    Ps2. I have a mate working at pwc, IT dept, he says that mostly, linux and anything but windows is against the guidelines.

    Dual boot exists...

    Guys, I must use Windows because the software that I have to use only exist for Windows. I would love to have dual boot with a Linux distro but the notebooks blocked (can't even boot from USB or install my own software). Anyways I have my personal notebook with Linux if I need to do something there.

    my comment may seem as I'm proposing dual boot to OP. It's actually directed towards everyone that complains him of not using Linux.

    I myself work in a company where Windows is required to run some apps.

    @RustyCookie I totally agree with your mate but all in the building (as far as I know) use the same OS and most of them aren't programmers, ITs or anything related and giving Linux to them will slow down the job until they learn (which requires money and time).

    @LuxARTS You can't install your own software? As a dev? What the crap?

    Ergh.
    I would not stay long.

    @Root Yes, I think the same but they use very privative software and have that guidelines so you can't use whatever you want.
    That doesn't mean that you can't make your own programs or scripts and use it.

    I don’t trust companies that don’t trust me.
    I think I am professional developer and if someone doesn’t trust me so how the fuck he is trusting that I won’t run software that would fuck up whole company network cause I am already there hired.
    How about someone from a reception desk ask 10 people if they can pick up telephone before picking it ?

    Fuck corporations.
    Well do what you need to do there and get the fuck out before they transfer your brain to the hamster chasing money.

    @Root It's pwc tho. Big 4. It is a dream job for many people.

    You go there, cope with them for some time, build some exp for your CV and then go somewhere less toxic.

    Personally I didn't go that route cuz I hate their corporate bullshit.
    Instead I went into FOSS development.
    One year in and I still feel like I'm cheating someone when I get my salary, because I just enjoy working. Basicly I do stuff I could be doing on my own as a hobby, only its large scale.

    @RustyCookie Oh my. Where do you work?
    A hint would be enough 😊

    @Root I can't come up with any hint that won't give away the name :p.
    But the field is web infrastructure, ubiquitous computing.

    @RustyCookie If it was CERN I would have been incredibly envious. ☹

    @Root Absolutely. My dream is to work in the LHC.

    @Root @LuxARTS You'd be amazed by how easy it is to get hired there, if you know your shit, that is.

    @RustyCookie I know lots of things they don't care about, and I'm not talented enough at the things they do.

    I may have seriously considered being a physicist, and studied it for years for fun, but that doesn't mean I am one. Not even close.

    @Root fair point mate

    @RustyCookie @Root my brother is a theoretical physicist. He did his post-doc at Clausthal, and spent some time at CERN. We'll have these late night talks, which are pretty much one-sided. I just nod my head and make a mental note that I need to finish reading Zeilinger's Dance of the Photons.
