This guy at my last internship. A windows fanboy to the fucking max!

He was saying how he'd never use anything related to Linus Torvalds because he hated him for creating Linux.

Two seconds later I saw him initializing a new git repo.

I was standing there like:

*should I tell him?*

    he will eventually find out. Just make sure to be there for him as I doubt he'll handle the shock

    Wait for the best time when it will hurt as much as possible ;-) ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‹

    I may be a windows user but let him burn!!!!!
  • 12
    Do tell him!
  • 25
    yes, tell him! and let him use SVN instead

    @ThatDude He's all about making money and M๐Ÿ’ฐ has a good business model according to him and he doesn't want to 'feed' the 'poor open' community because he thinks paid software is always way better and so on!

    @linuxxx To be honest I never found a good open source project for Office (libreoffice is just not as good as MS Office, not even Apple's office is good though)
    I've searched a lot for Project management software to be open source and good, but never found one, found iTaskX3 and Microsoft Project to be best for my needs.
    VMware vs Virtual Box, vbox has slow performance on my end.

    Now speaking of dev/IT tools I only look for open source ones, never found a better alternative for my needs.

    @ThatDude true design is not everything but features of MS office are worth the price, I know license is too much for Office and MS Project (1000$+)!!
    but for a company these features do make a difference.
    I tried out the trial version of MS Office and checked out Project Libre, there is a HUGE difference between them

    This ๐Ÿ˜ž and the fact Linux outside of dev work is limited for what is available or atleast it seems that way from my experience.

    I can’t seem to find a distro that can actually compete with windows for VM, Gaming, Media, Networking, and normal office work.

    Unfortunately Microsoft has that support and ecosystem and I would rather VM a linux distro then burn a hole in my laptop VM’ng windows.

    So until that day comes, I’ll enjoy the FOSS world where I can and stick to windows for my daily needs.

    Tell him. And then tell him Microsoft uses Git.

    @C0D4 Same here, I run Ubuntu in a VM and use it for all my dev stuff, I only have MS windows for the rest of my needs
  • 20
    Before telling him, try to convince him that svn is better that git and record what he says.

    Then drop the bomb
  • 2
    @ThatDude Dev stuff are, but others I didn't see yet, appreciate if someone knows I'd be happy to move away from Windows starting to hate it these days :/

    I know it's not open source, but I found google docs really nice.

    Linux fanboy meets Windows fanboy. Life can be funny sometimes. : - )

    @sSam it sure is better than Apple Pages, but MS Word is more flexible (of course not the web version, didn't really like it)

    In the end to each his own decisions just so that no one calls me MS fanboy lol
  • 2
    Yes because it's time to remember what is really important for work and not for a single person.

    And i point at you "fan of this f****** d***"!.

    Did he have an android phone or iOS?
  • 2
    Fucking tell it to him when he push to repo again.
    It will surely burn him from inside to dust.

    @sebh0602 I'd assume he probably has the last Windows phone seeing how he's a fanboy.

    @gitpush
    Try org mode off emacs/spacemacs(vim)
    You can type it all like .md
    You can convert .org to xls doc PDF latex.
    You can hook in email calenders etc.
    Example:
    * Design philosophy of puzzels
    Lorem ipsum

    * Why are you so afraid of failure
    ** Johnathan blow
    Lorem ipsum
    Etc

    Convert to PDF it creates a index
    Like the image.

    Short excel example.

    Org mode has everything but better and faster. It takes sometime to learn but it's worth it.

    I'm a huge windows fanboy but I'd MUCH prefer Linux to be in the seat where Microsoft is now.

    I value open source software so much and use it every day. I wouldn't have the knowledge I have now without open source code.

    I would also switch to Linux if I could, but unfortunately my environment is all windows and my org I work for prevents me from ever using it.
  • 1
    Very yes.

    Show him what a hypocrite he is.
  • 1
    Yes, and then film the expression on his face as he learns that his whole life is a lie! Muahahahahaha! (I had an annoying day so feeling a bit evil )

    @linuxxx How does he pay for git? And does he have Android?

    @SpectralKH Paying for git, how? what do you mean? And yeah he runs android xD

    @linuxxx In response to the "Paid software is always better"

    People who have unswerving dedication to one thing and won't listen to arguments towards that thing drive me nuts

    Not so long ago, Microsoft joined the Linux Foundation.

    @C0D4 I get it that there can be features available for Windows only that some users need. Gaming is without discussion. But you say windows has better networking features? In which way?

    @sudoguy

    For most things I don’t have an issue, but for an old NAS server I have that barely works with FTP let alone direct network shares but has yet to fail me. I’ve gone through a couple of HDDs but the server still goes.

    I haven’t been able to mount the drives under Ubuntu or Centos but it connects fine under windows. ๐Ÿ˜ซ

    Even Microsoft has bowed to Linux now. Tell him and enjoy the precious reaction.
  • 1
    @Jop- True yes.
  • 0
    @ThatDude Yes

    And Microsoft contributing to the Linux foundation, don’t forget that!

    @Jop- So u mean Microsoft is just playing with our feelings?

    @sain2424 Pretty much they are, yeah.

    @Jop- oh god Direct3D. Why’d you have to remind me of that nightmare?!
  • 1
    @Jop- @linuxxx Makes me hate Windows even more. I was big fan of Microsoft back in early 2000's. Then followed a list of bad experiences.

    Jesus, have you told the guy yet? I subscribed to you and have yet to hear anything official about this

    @iSwimInTheC I hope I'll never see him again!

    Windows fanboys EXIST?

    @namenlossss They do, and they’re usually quite arrogant.

    @gitpush instead of libreoffice msoffice and all that show-me-my-pretty-text proc (i read a formula like that while ago i liked it but couldn't find it) and concentrate on actually what you write using a:

    ui-is-not-my-stuff -> LateX ;)

    Redpill the fucker.

    No. Ignorance is punishment enough. Imagine the irony... Even interacting with the web exposes you to a significant amount of Linux.

    You know what, tell him. Let's see if he'll abandon Git and every bit of tech that Linus Torvalds has every built, inspired or improved. #objectiveOpinion
