Why not post them, makes a great opportunity for someone who loves
Linux (and happens to know MS stuff) to possibly get the job and be a
promoter of Linux from within ;-). Of 3 of the last 4 places I
worked, there was no real use of Linux before I started there. After
I was working there Linux was taking care of several tasks, many more
people within the organization were more versed in it, and there were
plans to expanded it's uses, even after they knew I was going to be
So never knock and opportunity for:
One, a job
Two, a chance to educate about Linux and OpenSource to a new business.
Just adding my two cents.
PS. And if Linux/OpenSource never takes off within and it's
important you work with it, at least it paid the bills till your find
something more your style...
PPS. Maybe I'm just a little to open minded to jobs of any technical
nature being posted to a technical type group...
PPPS. Maybe to many PS in my email...
