Just talk louder and be more persistent; they'll reach a point where
they'll either listen or fire you; it the later, no great loss since
it doesn't sound like they're worth working for.

You gave them your word that you'd act like a good little obedient
dimwit? Why would anyone promise to do that? I suggest that you
run emacs and invoke doctor ("M-x doctor") to get some help. ;-)

One can always refuse to work with that Micro$oft rubbish. Perhaps you
could educate your employer's clients; tell them all about the big
mistakes that they're making by wanting to use that Micro$oft
virusware which is broken, and otherwise annoying, by design. Don't
mince words, tell it like it is, and tell them that no reasonably
intelligent computer hacker would work with that rubbish unless it was
as part of a project to change over to a UNIX system, or VMS, or even
CP/M... that is, changing over to a system that doesn't destroy data
and do other peculiar things with files. Ask them why they like
operating systems that molest data... someone needs to make an "Eddy
Electron" like film, that's Monty Pythonish, called "Pfe$ter, the
Micro $oft Mole$ter," showing him doing strange things with bits of
data as they flow through the computer.
