Help me /g/
I'm an old user of Linux ( like 7 years), I use it as daily driver, home, university everywhere

in the work even, till this new curryniger IT manager came with new policy : Everyone in the company shall have windows installed (preferably win10).
We (engineering department) have a higher privilege, though, and we can get some exceptions, and I have a deal with my boss if I list him programs work on Linux exclusively (not available on windows or suck on it), he will make an exception to keep my Linux installed my computer.

I'm an electrical engineer ( communications and network )

tl'dr : help me to list programs work on Linux only and not windows.

Virtualization. You can run it on Windows but you are forced to either use out of date versions or pay big bucks to avoid limitations that don't exist with KVM/Xen.

If you're managing or working with UNIX, linux or network equipment, making you switch to windows is a major waste of company time and money.

Thats actually a good one, thanks.

Thats what the common sense say, unfortunately, our company is huge and the saving money isn't an issue for them. and for the time wasting, on our last meeting with him (IT nigger) said: " it should all the OS united to one OS, windows, its the most complete one with enterprise level of data managing and blah blah"
I'll try to post some his emails how he shill for windows every 2-3 days with stupid quotes.

>> No.51378336

Package managers make things a lot easier. you can also use proprietary windows software through wine. I think almost all software have windows binaries though. I think the best arguement is that you're used to it and the easier package management. Also they should have to provide software that you can't run on your system to validate forcing you to change

>> No.51378372

does he not care that switching to an inferior os would drastically reduce your productivity?

Spice would be an electrical engineer program. GnuRadio might fit into the wireless communications, but I think they have a version of that on Windows. Has your boss actually spent time with Win 10? It seems awfully silly to just up and move everybody to a different OS if nothing is broken.

Close to no one uses KVM professionally.
People use hyper-v for windows heavy environments or vmware for mixed environments.
And windows 10 and 8 have complete versions of them integrated.

>I'm an electrical engineer ( communications and network )
That would be a good reason to make use of the tons of software available for windows for exactly that purpose. Windows is king in branch software.

>All the programs you listed are available on windows.
I think this is gonna happen with pretty much any program available in Linux. Many of then are Free/Open Source, so they could potentially be ported to Windows. This potential is realized when many people want the programs on Windows.

tl;dr: OP, the programs you're gonna want to use are probably already ported to windows

The solution is simple: Install Windows 10 in a VM. Never start it up.

You have complied with the IT manager's requirement, since your machine has Windows "installed on it". Problem solved.

Any program that you use in shell scripting without gui.

Any network security program you use (in fact this is arguably a very, very important reason to favor *nix over windows)

Any cloud/Kvm stuff like
Docker, OpenStack, Kubernetes

Any developing without .NET like Python (ScyPy, Django) or Ruby (Rails) or even C, etc.

A more logical alternative that would comply with the racist moron's original request would be to install Windows 10 and then install a VM and then Linux as a virtual client. He would then have the best of both worlds.

But then, I'm just a currynigger.

He didn't, yet . but he is accepting the idea which is more scarier tb.h.

Not much programming.


thanks /g/uys

Not really, some programs shall be run under cygwin, which is not natively supported.

Thats my PlanB

Its not that simple, they're even monitor your real time in windows with program called "dameware" and maybe with other keylogger
I think thats why they want to switch everyone to windows.

I'm not a heavy Linux user, all I can think of is terminal, but I'm pretty sure Linux is more secure.

Holy fuck OP, I'm sorry. You're an engineer, using Linux for everything...and you have to conform your computer use to the likes of *THIS*? This...this would be absolute torture.

OP, you know what you must do. You must destroy this man, professionally and spiritually.

Plan A) He sounds completely retarded, honestly. Can't you get a department movement going, and attack this guy's qualifications? He sounds like the sort that would know absolutely nothing about Linux. What is his background, his training, his certifications? Does he have any *nix experience? He sounds completely ignorant.

Plan B) You're the Linux guy in the house...go full on Mr. Robot on him. Hack his ass. We know you can do it OP, /g/ is here to help...try watching "Hackers" for inspiration.

FOSS program's goals don't include exlusivity. If he only wants exclusive software even though all the software you need is on Linux you are fucked so leave the company. However, mednafen-server is exclusive to Linux, and it even has 'server' in the name. Would be a good name to list in the moment as he probably doesn't know its for netplay on emulators

You can also say wget, bash, zsh, cli git, clipit, sed, cli mysql/postgre, ssh server, VIM, ed, by this point you can just talk shit - apt-get, yum, openssl, pacman, lynx, screenfetch, say you need a LAMP stack.

Linux does not succumb easily to virus, malware and malicious attacks. That alone for an enterprise with data assets will like to protect.
