This is accurate.

They're neglecting the biggest thing though, which is that Windows requires "Enterprise Security" which means paying a bunch of engineers to lock down all of your corporate workstations to the point that they can no longer really even be called computer, as pretty much everything has to be disabled except Office and browsing (through a tightly controlled, expensive Bluecoat proxy)

Windows is expensive as fuck to run in a business.

OK here goes, there's this entire field that studies theoretical and actual computer architectures, and no, they're not all equal or dependent on the user. Architecture is fucking important, and Windows architecture is lacking -- there's no way to effectively use the computer to compute things.

but aside from that, no, Windows is not as useful in tech as Linux or MacOS. The only Dev shops that run Windows are tied to the government, and have to meet specific 'security requirements' that are mostly nonsense.

If you have 100,000 computers (or just a dozen like me), and you want to use one central computer to deploy an operating system and drivers, push all applications, configurations, anti-malware, updates, mapped drives, etc to all of them... can you do this with anything but Windows Server paired with Windows Enterprise client? Maybe.

Since Microsoft holds the essential patents around this process, I don't think it would be anywhere near as functional with Mac or Linux.

This above process works best with Intel/NVidia hardware, thus solving both debates, imho.

>> No.59360231


yes, that's called configuration management

ever heard of Saltstack / Puppet / Ansible / Chef?

Scaling servers works *way* better with Unix than with Windows.

dude all the drivers are in kernel space

you don't need to install drivers in Linux (other than occasionally a driver for a proprietary wifi card or GPU)


>> No.59360463

I'm not talking about driver updates. Every OS needs the correct device drivers installed to correctly utilize the underlying hardware. I have a few friends who have proudly announced that after an entire weekend's worth of work, they finally got their sound card working in Linux distro XYZ.

If Windows is so bad, why do the overwhelming majority of corporations use it on all client devices? Why has AMD faded out in favour of Intel and NVidia in these corporations? Drivers. Mass deployment scenarios and drivers.

>> No.59360545

dude you are so fucked by using Windows

you don't install any drivers on your mass deployment of MacBooks, ever

nor do you have to do it on your mass deployment of Linux servers

I have a 20k+ sized fleet running Kubernetes and we haven't had to install a single driver

I've installed Linux on some of my devices, and been unable to solve device driver issues. On Windows, I've always been able to make it work. It is quite possible I just don't get Linux.

How do you deploy an OS using PXE with all correct drivers to any client device device using Linux? (not talking about servers)

My Windows mass deployment solutions remain in use at many large corporations.

You do realize that SCCM is a gigantic waste of money, right? You can do all of that for free with Saltstack / Puppet / Chef / Ansible...

Traditional Windows admins are so focused on fixing problems that are unique to Windows that they don't realize that they're becoming a gigantic, bottomless pit of wasted money and time

>Which is superior, Mac or PC?

What is Mac? A mainframe?

>> No.59360890

Yes, totally possible with config management, and quite easy. What you're talking about is called 'bootstrapping', which requires a PXE server, a TFTP server to host the images, and a config management tool to config them to whatever requirements you have

There's also cool tools like Terraform that abstract the bootstrapping process entirely, allowing you to create versionable architecture across VMWare, Hyper-V, Bare Metal, and cloud environments

Windows hurts your career in the long run because you get pigeonholed into using Windows specific shit like SCCM that's utterly useless outside of a narrow Windows context (that's dying)

No, you're a Windows admin. You're always going to get talked down to by Linux admins. Either become one of us or get used to it scrub

- you don't need to install drivers on Linux servers
- you don't need to install drivers on Macbooks
- if for some reason you did, you'd install that in the image itself if it was required to boot the machine, or through config management if it was required for usability

if you're wasting your time with drivers at all, it's because you've fucked up somewhere -- Linux is a monolithic kernel, and all drivers are contained in the kernel -- if for some reason you need a driver that isn't contained in the kernel (this is pretty much impossible for servers, and for workstations only happens with Wifi / Video), you fucked up by not buying compatible hardware in the first place

These threads are fucking gay.

Literally the same canned arguments since 1996 from a bunch of faggot undergrads who rarely venture outside their browsers trying to talk themselves up and counteract their low self esteem that prohibits them from feeling superior to others in normal, productive ways.

There's a reason many of the most influential figures in computing don't really seem to have a particular preference in OS and can be found using everything; when you learn how computers actually work and what they accomplish, you realize that every OS is the same for a typical use case, and it's just a matter of what you personally, subjectively and often irrationally prefer.
