    Some people aren't content with Microsoft's cookie cutter experience and like to have the freedom of open source to suit their needs. It's a difference of preference, not wealth. "Poor" folks have an option with piracy and take advantage of it quite well.
    I didn't respond to that post because it was retarded.

    My point is that if you're looking to brush up on your tech skills, you need to run a LAMP stack and learn to admin it.

    I'd also focus on familiarizing yourself with a server configuration that utilizes VMWARE or any of the Open Source virtualization products, in our case we've chosen to utilize OpenVZ in production.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
