It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Windows Desktop

At work I'm not allowed to use a Linux desktop system, apparently because IT can't support such a system. However I am allowed to configure and maintain the web servers, and a B2B server, and there is pretty much nothing IT could do from stopping me causing havoc if I wanted to. One server has more that $12million going though it each year, and though I couldn't steal any money I could redirect orders to the bit-bucket.

They trust me with production servers, but not with a desktop system! I'm therefore forced to lower my productivity and use a stupid Windows client system.
