dashing_cavalier's Journal: Still a M$ whore. Sigh.

Journal by dashing_cavalier

Yes, I'm still a M$ whore. But before you judge, please hear my tale of woe...

Barely a week after my last journal entry, I was laid off from my job. I was a Microsoft developer doing VB6, VC++ 6, and ASP for a DotCom. (Yeah, yeah, DotComs, I know...) Fortunately I did receive a decent severance package, so at least I could pay the bills for a while. This did present me with an opportunity to finally do what I always wanted to do - go into business for myself. So I set myself up as Munson Technologies, LLC, and found a gig doing TabletPC development with C# and .NET. The only problem is that this project has kept me busy like 60+ hours a week, so I have precious little time to really get into Linux. And now I'm a release behind on Mandrake - 9.2's out now with the 10.0 Community Edition also being released (shoulda subscribed to the Mandrake club, grrrrr...)

So basically the only thing I've had time to do with Linux is install the Java SDK 1.4 and Opera. Sheesh - wish I could win the lottery so I could really spend some time with Linux. In any event, I feel that being an independent developer will give me the opportunity to focus more on Linux in the future. But until I can save up enough to take some time off, I'm afraid I'll still be a M$ whore. Sigh.
