Hell o All,
I have a background in Windows Desktop support, network support an obsolete (I think expired not sure) MCSE.
Trouble is I get asked about the vintage of my MCSE (Windows NT 4.0 obtained in 2000).
Do Any of you use Linux at work? How do I get my "foot in a door?"

Malaika: Yes, it is a great feeling and I know just how addicting open source can be. While I am now a massage therapist, I was a computer tech/system administrator a few years ago. At that time I was into open source morning, noon and night.
I do my best to focus my time on the computer to completing specific projects. However, there are times when I just want to play. I love creating database structures or designing a complete system for, well, not for anyone, just to do it. As much fun as it is, the more time that I spend on the computer the less people friendly I become.
Obviously that is not very good for my marriage and other friendships.
It was easy to limit my time when I had ms systems, but now it seems as though an old door has opened. It will be interesting to see what ridiculously overly complex, yet benign form I create now.
Have a great evening to all.

It's a nice feeling isn't it =) I am glad that you are happy in using opensource apps. It can be an addicting feeling sometimes =)

I first announced several months ago that I had installed the Feisty version on my laptop. I was happy then to have finally returned to open source but was still not satisfied because I still had ms on the desktop. I had not found a suitable replacement for publisher. I do a fair amount of desk top publishing for my business and was worried that I would not be able to do some of the things that needed to get done.
Over the past several months, I have been spending time with Scribus, as well as re-doing as many documents in the open office format (re-doing since .pub files can not be converted), and creating others in scribus.
Due to a strange thing happening with msVISTA, which rendered the programs that I was using unusable, plus nuked my ability to access the internet, I installed Ubuntu on the desktop.
I am so happy. Just wanted to share with people who I know understand.
The installation went relatively well. I had some problems with the onboard NIC, so I put an old card in one of the slots. I still had problems with the configuration and getting the Network Tools/Manager to do their thing. Finally, after checking and rechecking everything, I restarted the modem (comcast) and internet success.
So much for rambling,
Keep up the good work and the encouragement. While I don't post often, I read everything that I receive in my inbox.
Have a wonderful day today.
