I'm a newbie when it comes to Linux, but I've seen the light and am switching from Windoze.

From the hiring aspect you have to understand that many of the people doing hiring have no idea about this. They just know that they use Red Hat, and if you aren't certified in Red Hat, they aren't as interested. You and I know this is rediculous, but these types of hiring people have no idea that they are ignorant of their needs.

Speaking from the Windows side of the house, I didn't even know that OpenBSD really wasn't Linux. Had no idea what Slackware was. Had no idea what Debian was. Thought Red Hat was THE way to go if I went to Linux. If you deal with folks that aren't working with Linux, they don't know that what they don't know.
