      Been a Linux user for more than a decade, but work doesn’t do Linux :( I even brought my laptop in to show them that everything works fine (AD and all), but they didn’t go for it.

          They use datto I think as their remote monitoring, and it works on Win, Mac, and Linux. Good guess, though!

          Like the type software that sends a report if you don’t use the mouse or the keyboard for 30 seconds? Remember to setup something like autohotkey for when you want to take a gaming break 😅

        I just started using Linux at work without telling anyone. On month 2 now and no one has noticed yet. They keep asking how I do all the fancy kde effects on my lappy and to do it to their windows machine. I just say “Sorry it’s a hacked Mac” with an Acer logo on the back lol.

          You can rice kde like windows 10/11 or anything even like macos there are github pages and youtube videos available. Did you riced it like macos are you talking about that?

            No, it’s nothing like anything, I have 3 bars and just the accent color feature from kde. A clean desktop. But none of them own a Mac or have any technological knowledge, so they just believe it.

              So why do you tell them it’s a Mac rather than just telling them the truth? Do you think its somehow shameful to use Linux or something?

                Well for one, they don’t know about it, and if they don’t know about it, to them it’s probably some experimental piece of tech. And there’s nothing good that’ll come out of explaining it to them, it’s a bother really.

          Yeah :(

          My friend uses RHEL at work daily. It’s what they use. Lucky duck.

            In this job we got to choose whichever computer we want to put the budget on and could just install whatever OS gets the job done. It’s been like this for the past 10 years, but I typically work in tech companies with around 10-100 people.

            Went with NixOS as always.

              How is Nix? I’ve wanted to try, but it seems limited and computers are expensive. Now that you’ve told me you use it for work for so long, I’m seeing it in another light.

                It’s great if you’re a programmer. Even better if your whole team uses it, so you can trivially standardize the build env of the project. NixOS manages the whole OS with nix, but you don’t need it to be a part of the gang.

                I’ve been using NixOS everywhere for years, and written long comments on Lemmy about it, so check my history if you want to read reasons why nix :)

          I just got told today to begin Windows 11 build testing at work. No one in the meeting seemed enthusiastic about it even going so far as to make fun of it’s many…issues. Once I’m done getting off Google services, my next move is too divorce Windows like Melinda divorced Bill!

          I just wish I wasn’t so good at fucking up Linux on every machine I’ve tried it on.

      Same here. Bought a laptop a few years ago, and immediately installed manjaro. I wasn’t even going to futz around with dual booting. I decided I was done with windows and their bullshit. Haven’t looked back.
