For narkhedeparag03, it depends largely on you and what u are lookin out for. Have searched enough on net for even online jobs, which part of the world are u physically located, what are developments like dere.
U kno what, I think u will have to do a survey of ur own market, know what dey want, then try as much as possible to add some knowledge in dat area and be ready to convince an employer dat u can solve problems.
In fact, dat is the word, are u solving more problems now.
Quick Step - start up a blogger, highlight some common day problems, move ahead to suggest the solutions and post it to all pple u kno in ur area and prospective employee. Keep up wit dat for some time and u will surely get things kickin. It is not certification perse dat gets u job, it is what u can do with wat u currently have dat gets u above board.
I have no Linux experience whatsoever but I really want to learn. I saw some Linux netbooks online and they seemed like a nice affordable way to dive right in. Linux only required less ram and hard drive. So the netbook you stated are excellent for linux. What you need to know that windows softwares will not work with linux unless you r an expert to know how to use windows software in linux. So you r new to linux. Well i will say it's very fun but hard, because you will have to do several list of things to add on. Like webcam, games, or anything that you wish to have on. I started learning linux way back in 2006 before i got a laptop with Ubuntu installed in.

This thread is dead and is now attracting flies.......
Hello, I bought a toshiba satellite L100 170 about five years ago. The screen backlight stopped working within a month after the warranty expired. I wish I'd known about that free repair!
Since then I've been using the 'laptop' connected to a monitor. I decided that the way forward was get the laptop with the smallest screen, to save from wasting so much money. Got an ASUS MyEeepc, with Linux. I also have a Linux phone...
Now I've put OpenSUSE on the Toshiba! I've just replaced the inverter on the sceen, but that didn't work.
charesnape: This post is a couple years old. I've been looking into it for signs of fellow toshiba users. Please start a new post or search for a relevant post that is newer. Got a question? PM a user, or start a new thread.
I am having a problem with my backlight. Unfortunately it is not an 1800 series. It is a Satellite M30X. I am very frustrated because the warranty went out a month ago. I was informed that it will cost anywhere between $500-800. Is there anyone who can fix it cheaper? Can I fix it myself?
