jespersh8629144dWelcome to the club
swagnette426144dLmao what? If you're not specifically developing iOS apps/features, why can't you use Linux?
zlice3887144dreally? i cant stand mac. cant do shit about hotkeys or changing keyboard layout, OS resets shit and hijacks keys and ignores any changes.
can't move windows above certain bounds, again, bc OS doesn't allow that.
VM doesnt work on Mac, again, bc OS hijacks shit and cant seem to handle key swapping between VM and grabbing fuking input
windows i was able to config. strip down. remap keys ffs. VMs actually grab input and behave like i expect
(also: no one ever knows when you image your PC and run that in a VM with linux host LOL)
gcavalcante8808179144dAt least you don’t need to use windows, it’s a minor victory hehe
daniel-wu83144dMacOS was made for babies, lol. Apple won't let you change any advanced settings or edit the system files.
12bitfloat7700144dWhy though? MacOS is honestly pretty good, especially compared to windows. It's not sandboxed to shit like iOS and it's unix, so...
catgirldev1688144dWelcome to working in corporate America lol
lbfalvy10586144dIt's quite normal in the corporate world. If everyone's setup is the same, automation is easier and the difference between dev environments consumes fewer working hours. Problems arise when
- the company expects me to bring my own anything that's compatible with their infrastructure
- provided equipment is such poor quality it's a health risk, such as Macbook keyboards
- IT fails to manage their own infra effectively, gives random people excessive privileges to hide it and the environments start to diverge slowly enough to keep working _most of the time_
- Some people in high level engineering positions are allowed to choose their own OS, and they start picking frameworks that don't work well with the broader company infra. IT then moves that team to a different OS and the horrid transition period from platform-as-standard to standard-as-platform begins where nothing works but there are no guidelines for internal tools to support everything.
beecorps43144dDid you propose Ubuntu or Arch?
hjk1014597139dI'm ok with it but yeah I'm almost twice as productive on Linux
