> Traditionally speaking (past decade or so) you have always been far more productive in the majority of corporate environments by using a Windows desktop, installing a bunch of unix-related admin tools, and then having a separate Linux node you did your Linux/Unix hacking and administrative tasks from.
There are yet 80 days until 2013-04-01, so this joke is premature. Traditionally a Linux/Unix desktop was *far* more productive for Linux/Unix admin and hacking only since 7 a Windows desktop comes closer.
Our main admin has problems to install NX on local diskless clients so he installs diskfull Windows as substitute. The drop in productivity is staggering. Fortunately I have enough influence to prohibit such nonsense at my desk.
