I write a lot of my home automation routines in Freebasic now.

Beginning to like gpxe more and more. So far we have it for setting up to install linux distros via the net. Now we have it to load clonezilla.

No more messing around with tftp except when needed.

How to tell a real tech...

Probably going to get lambasted for this, but it is something to think about when judging a potential employee. Can a potential employee use what they have or do they need thousands of dollars just to do the simplest thing to get going. Here we will pit a confirmed Microsoft software only advocate versus someone who has at least some familiarity with linux or is willing to try something new and use the systems alloted to them.
