I don't get why certain people always complain about the OS they have to use at work... I get, that as a person who really uses aspects of the OS like a sysadmin or something like that, has valid points... but no... as a projectmanager or productmanager, whos tools are all browserbased... "in Windows I know where all the things are..." is not a valid excuse to hate on the OS...

What do you want to do? Change system settings everyday? Use PowerShell to create your Jira tickets?

    Are they forced to use a *nix system?

    Btw I'd complain the shit out of it if I had to use windows

    @alexbrooklyn We're using Macs because the company that provides us with the hardware had a contract with Apple (now with MS, they switched to Surfacebooks already). But seriously... the only thing they need in theory is the fucking browser...

    @alexbrooklyn I would also complain about using Windows

    Devs think that complaining about having to use Windows makes them look like real devs, and PMs are just as insecure, only the other way around.

    They're all just tools.

    I have preferences, buy honestly most of my frustrations are because I didn't know something.

    In my case it'd be a principle thing 😅

    I don't really get it either. Sometimes I code on Windows, sometimes macOs, and if I had to I'd do it on some Linux distro too. It's really not a big deal unless whatever you're coding requires a specific setup.
