Sometimes you don't have a choice in the matter.

This is because you don't work hard enough *<;-)


Maybe the winking smiley face with a party hat meant he was just joking?

that's not true. there are lots of situations when you just get a
PC and only that system is enable on the specific network.
you can't reinstall it to Linux because there is a 'fantastic' sw
on it which regularly report itself to the server. if this report
delay, the network connection will terminate. yep, you can ask
exception for you but the internal policy is banned it.
so what would you do in this situation?

What do you see as a problem here? He's saying he has no choice about
using Windows in a particular network. That's not unusual. Most
companies bigger than three or four people have IT policies, not always
sanely based. In purely practical terms, all the workstations in a
company might be identical, all running Office, so that anyone can work
anywhere. There might be a third-party security compliance procedure
that excludes other operating systems, deliberately or otherwise. And
so on...
