    I don't know how many times I use to say this. I don't claim to be a genius, but once I started reading more books and actually understanding how things worked instead of assuming things. I've made my computer skills alot more useful instead of complaining all the dam time.

    But I have played with Linux it is awesome but you really have to know what your doing before you decide to C:\Reformat

    b/c developing in linux can be more productive when compared to windows.

    and when i say cold turkey, i also mean that i have a few Linux reference books.

    If you know what you're doing, sure. But the same can be said for better productivity with Windows as long as you know what you're doing.

    What are you going to be developing in Linux?

    we like to call those I-D-TEN-T errors.
    its funny cause they think you just made some revelatious statement and start agreeing with you and saying "how could they have over looked that? Of Course!"

    Just don't let-em write it down near you. ID10T
