Re: OS other than Win


Most places I've worked are a mix of of both flavours of Windows, and
flavours of Unix, each chosen based upon it's suitability for the task.

It's the standards that allow the different flavours and OSes to coexist
side by side.

To make casual assumptions with obviously little experience outside a closed
world about the usage of Unix is as silly as to make casual assumptions
about the use of English, and simply brushing aside consideration of
languages such as Spanish.

I can fully understand how from some positions the world might appear to be
nearly completely English speaking, or all running Windows. It is however a
naive viewpoint, and not a good measure of reality.

I'd add that I am myself an English speaking web-dev, who's currenly having
a blast with .NET so I have quite a clear bias of preference. I am however
developed on occasion with Python, Apache, and MySQL, with is an absolutely
wonderful platform to be developing Web apps for.

It's a rich and varied world out there, and I wouldn't be too quick to
blinker yourself.
