3y

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.

    Okay, I am a High Schooler, but this is literally the opposite of what happens to me in school.

    I use a Mac as my main computer. I have also installed Linux on some old PCs and occasionally use them. I just hate the structure of the NT system. It is so cluttered, as though the developers were just piling the features on to the system without actually polishing it out. That's why I always prefer an OS that tends to use the Unix Kernel. I most of the time use a mac, because it has more support than Linux and well, I just like the clean, polished look of it. Whenever I make something in Java, I usually put it into my /local/bin and run it automatically from command. Now, a lot of people do not understand why I use OS X and Linux, and they give me a lot of shit for it. Let's just say the only reason why they like the NT system, is because it has a "lot" of games.

    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. A lot of people confuse the two. It may be true that some users have to reinstall their Linux more than windows but that's because they fucked up. Also at least when something does break, reinstalling doesn't take much time

    @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

    @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 :)
