The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply.
Your question was:
And in response, thus spake the Oracle:
> Excellent but sometimes mostly useless Oracle, I have a difficulty
> with which you can help me out of. I have been using Linux in
> command-line mode since before the beginning and so I am an expert.
> But now my stupid boss (see "Stupid Boss" remarks in a previous
> question I might have asked you several years ago) wants me to use MS
> Windows 10. He thinks I can tell him what to do with it, and I am so
> tempted. I am so, very, very, very tempted.
> Where should I tell my boss to put his Windows 10? I really do not
> want to injure him or render him (physically or mentally) unable to
> pay me the handsome salary I get every week for doing almost nothing.
> (Mostly I do "df -h" about twice a day and let him know if he needs to
> buy more disk space. Yes, I could write a cron job that would do that,

} It is generally considered good practice to put Windows into a separate
} partition from your Linux installation. To do this, follow these simple
} 1. Use gparted or fdisk to create the various partitions used for
} Linux, such as /, /home, /usr and your swap.
} 2. Install Linux, configure it fully and connect it to the internet
} 3. Use your working Linux machine to order steel plates, a chain, a
} lock and a laptop
} 4. Wall off a section of the office with the steel plates and make the
} chain and lock ready to lock it. Place the laptop and the Windows 10
} CD in it
} 5. Lure your boss into the office partition by setting up a meeting for
} "Introduction to Value Driven Development Practices"
} 6. Lock him into the partition and let him install Windows 10. Or,
} You have now doubled your company's productivity with the help of
} Windows 10. Proceed to ask for a raise that you will not get.
} You owe the Oracle to put in a good word with "Bob".
