I know, that's exactly how they look.
I know they look (and are) cheap. It makes me not want to buy decent red blouses either even tho I love weird coloured blouses (of good quality). Never understood why they would make us wear blouses and such but then get cheap ones. What kind of message should that give? Where cheapasses trying to be fancy? Glad we're getting polos soon.
Are you working on some sort of bonus system and get paid for every object you sell?
No, hourly salary only. Extra if you work on Sundays and such (in the sense of 150% salary an hour on Sunday, etc), but sales or lack thereof do nothing for my income. Even things like selling insurance doesn't give me a cent extra. I'm also technically not allowed to advice, only to explain and tell pro's/con's and factual statements.
Instead of getting angry you also could have taken the opportunity to show customers that the laptop is also available for Linux, in this case Manjaro. Nice way of saying it doesn't have to be Windows.
Like I said, I would love to be able to promote Linux in store. But we're not allowed to do it this way. We could get in trouble with the companies making this products, as well as Microsoft as this was a Microsoft stand. All this does is create extra work for us.
If you want to see more Linux PCs in store, have people ask about them. As far as MM is concerned, there currently is no market since most install themselves or don't want to have an OS they need to learn so much for. Unless it's closed of and requires no knowledge of the system like Chromebook, for which google pays to have them on Display in our store, it's not interesting. Show there is a market, and maybe the store will invest in it
How would you, an employee of a shop in Zwolle, be able to know many Linux (Manjaro) users in The Netherlands?
I wouldn't. That was the point. I posted here not to blame the forum, but because it had the highest change to be seen by the person who did it. Otherwise, just conversation topic and me being able to share my annoyance somewhere.
But, I end with a to show I didn't mean all that in a bad way.
Don't worry. No offence has been taken taken. You're free to have your view as much as anyone else. I don't always agree, but we can still agree to disagree respectfully. I tried to show I'm not that bothered even tho I tend to write long text by having smiley comments too. I'm not great at short messages
Yeah. We don't necessarily mind people doing taxes in store unless we have actual customers who might want to take a look at the item, but we don't recommend it for their own privacy mainly. It's funny what you see happening sometimes, some stuff is really random. Some are funny, some are annoying, some or simply weird. Another example, you don't want to know how many people accidentally show their naked photos to people at the Smartbar when they need their phone repaired and still had some folders or apps open
