GitLab employees are not allowed to use Windows:
https://about.gitlab.com/handbook/security/approved_os.html

> As described in the Acceptable Use Policy, Microsoft Windows operating systems are not

> the Exception Process.

Reading other onboarding documents, it looks like most GitLab
employees have Macs, but Linux and BSDs are encouraged, if you support
yourself. Just not Windows, it's too insecure.

That makes perfect sense. I run Windows (rarely) in a VM to keep it from doing damage, just to do screenshots and testing for clients that use Windows.

I use Github, but I’m glad Gitlab is around, in case Microsoft starts acting naughty with Github.

Was just thinking the other day that if I ever get to retire I'll remove
all Microsoft stuff off my machines. I love using Linux Mint!

Just to be clear, I'm not planning to leave VMware, but if I did...
