They are also hiring lots of Unix-heads and porting MSIE to Unix.  I have
been pestered by calls in the past week from a Toronto placement
agency which does all the hiring for Microsoft Canada.  Telling them that
I know bugger-all about MS products and that I only do Unix has not
discouraged them the slightest.  They are either really really stupid, or
smarter than I thought.

Won't happen in the Linux camp.  At least not for a very long time.  I don't
think anybody would be able to convince Linus that a web server is not 
something that belongs in user space.  And I tend to agree that it should
stay in user space.
