4y

First new job impression;
Me: you use Ubuntu as well? Nearly everyone does Linux here I see!
Co-worker: yup!
Me: So no windows?
CW: nahh, we want stuff that's fixable if it gets fucked. *mentions some things about windows*
Other co-worker: (obviously referring to windows) hey no swearing in here!

πŸ˜„πŸ˜…πŸ˜†

I like it there!

    In my windows environment, if something breaks beyond a setting change or a driver installation, you're reformatting the computer. I hate it.

    @leo2807 Stap twee: volgens mij zitten ze momenteel goed qua aantal werknemers dus helaas :/.

    (Step two: I think they've got enough employees for the moment so too bad :/)

    @NoMaDhOoK yup, especially if you've setup dot files and an install file with all your common tools that you run once Linux or macOS is reinstalled

    I remember reinstalling windows for my brother because some critical files got magically corrupted, and i tried to figure out why. Failed, even windows' "Reset this PC" failed πŸ€”

    Mhm honestly I am using windows for more than a decade now and honestly (without looking at Windows ME and Vista) I was pretty satisfied with the OS as it is.
    The only thing that bugs me now ist that my windows that I updated from 7 now has some real issues with index creation and refreshing state in the explorer.
    These machines all had some sort of dual boot setups - but I was really into gaming that days therefore Windows always was my first boot priority. Now I boot it primarily into MacOS.

    In 2010 I bought a mac book pro which I use until today. And I think the thing I like the most about macs is the OS. For me it combines​ best of both worlds. Linux like experienced - coated with an opinionated layer which barely needs any setup.

    Back from my long post: Don't bash windows that hard - imho it is not as shabby as everybody makes it sound.

    @epse what is hindering you from using any other OS? My experience with that is - you only need to make sure it runs on the computers there.

    @M0dev we work on out own laptops so that isn't really the problem. The problem is C# (still, dotnet core exists) and WPF. From like week 3 onwards, every program will have a WPF GUI. So running Linux will be tricky

    @epse oh I feel you man

    Do they know you're Linuxxx on devrant ?

    @linuxxx haha so this is your sanctuary. :p

    I’m sure it would make this place less fun if they knew you were ranting about them.

    Sounds like a horrible culture if you happen to prefer Windows and thus might have missed a few amazing developers (and coworkers) or worse even pre-bullied them to use Linux and not enjoy their job for however long they last :/

    @Flygger The job title is Linux support engineer and this is made clear at the interview
  • 1
    @Flygger Next to that, windows and security isn't a good combo anyways so yeah

    @linuxxx Sounds reasonable then, but I guess I just really don't like people speaking bad about other people's preferences (or subjective matters in general) like they know everything and speak the ultimate truth :)

    "With Linux, 90% of the time when something breaks it was because you fucked with something. With windows 90% of the time it broke because windows had an update."

    funny, my personal experience with linux, since ever, across several attempts to be using it throught 2005-2020 is that everything's broken by default until I spend 2-6 hours per thing to fix it... by copypasting sequences of some arcane incantations into terminal, which I suspect not even the one who suggested them understands, and they are just being passed down generations by that very same kind of copypasta tradition (or, if you're called a linux wizard, bruteforce memorization).
