I started as a Solaris administrator. I converted from running Solaris with CDE as my main desktop to Debian with Fluxbox. At some point we needed a replacement for an old FTP server that had been running on IIS and I suggested a Linux based replacement on spare hardware. That was the toe in the door that led to a variety of servers running a variety of services on Linux.
Once we had Linux running in the environment I began to get Red Hat certifications. As I added each certification, Linux became even easier to sell as a solution since the company had a known skill set to run it.

Yeah, I have that problem too, only reverse. I am a Unix admin. I get screenshots pasted directly into Outlook that come to me as "OLE_embedded" in Thunderbird. Just attach a .jpg, don't embed it and just assume that someone else is using your same client to read your email. OTOH, I can reasonably assume that if they really wanted help they would have sent it in a readable format in the first place.

I've got a bad feeling about this.
