Oh yeah, and I only care about linux.
Now, that's a direct statement! :o

I really, really need to toughen up and get away from the M$ crap.

If only it was that easy.

I think its going to be several years (or perhaps never) that I'll be able to get away from Windows for work stuff, as there is plenty of commercial SW that only runs on Windows :-(

However, unless Windows 10 changes substantially in the next year or two. I suspect that Windows 7 will be the last MS OS I'll be running for my own use as well as business.
If I every have to use Windows 10, with its intrusive spyware built in, will be resigned to a separate machine just for work.

with regard to time, it only took me 14yrs or so to get an officially sanctioned linux box on the company network.
i 'retired' 4 wks later:-)

the first cracks in the wall were
1 ) gnu ada compiler around '94 saving i suspect a lot of ada per station costs
2 ) saving the u$ office & windows costs on a 'something' rig, also i got to write and play with linux device drivers

Since Linux still, after all these years, has only 1.3% share of desktops, it remains great for web surfers that don't need MS Office or specialized Windows-only apps. (I tried very hard to use an Office alternative but for non-trival documents as we use in real business work, it just doesn't work).
And among my large repertoire of apps I use a lot, including embedded system tools, financial management apps, Linux and often too, OS X, are just not viable.

I don't like Microsoft's monopoly either, but some of us would prefer to pay $80 every 4 years to them.

i didn't know that though.

ada fees back in 93/94 were £2k-£3k or more per station and we were looking at 400-500 plus stations; doing the grunt with gnu ada and
finally with the fully certified ada worked quite well.
even a compiler per 3, 4, 5 stations was expensive, programmers waiting cost as well:-)

I think the problem is that Microsoft have changed their business model.

Windows 10 is effectively free, as Microsoft have now decided that for most users they will get their money via in OS advertising and gathering your personal usage data in order, most probably to advertise to you, or your family or associates etc.

(Well I know Win 10 isn't technically free), MS are rolling it out as a free upgrade to everyone, and they would not be doing this all for free if they didn't intend Win 10 to be a money generator by some other means.

Perhaps the corporate versions will be different, but at the moment MS appears to be going down a rather undesirable business model with Win 10.

PS. Like you I have no option but to use Windows. As the majority of the software I used is not available for Linux (and sometimes not for OSX) and even if it is available for OSX, it generally doesnt work quite the same as on Windows, which can lead to compatibility problems.

I actually have to run OSX as well, as I need to deploy to iOS and OSX, but I don't have a need for Linux for business as its not required by my clients as a target platform (unless you count Android ;-) )

@Rick Kimball
Could you please share your scripts again for auto upload & start debugging.
Your github repository is down and I couldn't find it on your github page.

I want to port this linux project to Mac OS X
