So I work in company which enforces Windows machine only. God I'm dying for Linux. They have this antivirus to monitor every activity we all do. Please let me know if I can install Linux without letting them know.

    This seems like something you should have asked about before taking a damn job, don't ya think?

    Sure. Bring your own bootable external drive.
    I used to do that in high school. I had it on my ipod 😊

    Bootable usb
    Virtual machine
    Enable bash in cmd

    Beyond that.. bring your own laptop?

    @C0D4 Having company data on your private laptop could be a violation of contract.

    You're not in the company to have fun dicking around with Linux - you're being paid to do a fucking job! If Windows overwhelms you, quit the job and look for something else.

    @gronostaj I'm not a lawyer, checking ones contract and legal grounds on the matter is out of scope of my advice.

    @Fast-Nop I work for a Windows hard company, but they have 0 issue running Linux or Mac if required to get the job done,

    Granted you actually have to have a reason to not be on windows beyond "fuck windows"

    I just got to discover robolinux, which supports windows natively, maybe give it a look and check if it suits you

    @ZioCain What does "supports windows natively" mean?

    @gronostaj Idk, I still have to try it, but it seems it can run Windows apps, that's what I mean

    @ZioCain I don't understand how that would help in OP's situation.

    @gronostaj maybe he could run this Linux and still be able to use everything he has to use on windows

    @Stuxnet Yeah, I can't be such selective for my first job.

    @Fast-Nop Man I like everything about the job. Work, culture, technology we're working on. But uh, Windows hurts.

    @ZioCain The website claiming that it's "100% secure against viruses" makes me think the maintainers might not be competent.

    @gronostaj wow. It's harder to make it as shit as that than doing it properly.

    @Root I wish we could do that at my school. They've got the boot drive selection locked with a password.

    @kindawonderful you may not get to be extremely selective but I'mma go out on a limb and say you can probably find someone that will let you use your preference.
