Ranted about him before but this just came to my mind again.
The fucking windows (to the max) fanboy I had to deal with for too long.

Every time I mentioned something about what programming language to use in a project he was NOT part of:
"I know it's none of my business, BUT I think you should use .net"
(All backend JavaScript and php guys).

Every time I mentioned something about what server system to use:
"I know it's none of my business but I think you should use Windows server"
(All Linux guys)

Every time I'd say something positive about Linux he'd search as long as needed to prove that that was also a windows thing (didn't even come close sometimes)

Every time I told the devs there about a windows security issue (as in "guys they found this thing, install the next update to stay safe :)" - "ahhh will do, thanks for letting know man!") he'd search as long as needed to prove that Linux also had had security issues like that.
(Okay?!? I know?!? I'm just trying to notify people so their systems stay secure and they're genuinely happy with that so STFU)

MOTHERFUCKER.

    I came dangerously close to completely losing my shit at him multiple times but I felt bad for doing that to him because it might hurt his feelings or something...

    Wish you luck dealing with this type of people. If he was on the team guess its ok to suggest, but not part of the team yet: I know its non of my business...etc.

    @Alice I'd suggest blocking Facebook's entire domain space with the hosts file ;)

    @Alice Except for linu.xxx of course :P.

    I don't really watch porn so that'd be easy in me :)

    @Alice Why would people switch to windows once they have seen and felt Linux and many of its distros....
    I mean ..... the control you feel ..... the organisation level....

    Its a phase some people go through, just dont let it get to you and be nice to him, he'll be thankful for it later on.

    Just tell him everyone is going to choose the tools that fit best, no matter what the fuck the organization behind a tool is.

    Also please once confront him because he deserves it. Microsoft's tools have their uses too, but are probably not even coming close to being somehow suitable for what you're doing.

    @linuxxx wait you don't watch porn???

    I know it's none of my business but windows can serve that purpose very well! In fact it is it's sole purpose in life to give porn to the people!

    @user261 Windows servers are better because it's fun to wake up at 5 am with phone calls that a server is down (because of updates @@)

    @linuxxx This guy is not just a Windows fanboy. He's a fucking prick.

    @RickDiculous179 hey, if the server is down, there's no way someone with malicious intent could gain access to it!

    @RealKC oh it was for security I see...

    Ridiculous.

    Consider telling him that he's doing this. I bet he don't even realises how annoying that may be. I know talking about such stuff is annoying itself, but a honest statement clears out things between you and you'll both get something to reflect on.
