I tend to disagree with this point: "the job is Linux related".
Back when I was unemployed I wanted ANY job. Sure, a Linux job would be all
the sweeter and that's what I was hoping for, but I *needed* any job. If
someone on the list has a position open and they can find a competent
employee from the list all the better, right?
Now if we were still it the "growing like gangbusters" stage of the 1990s
I'd say keeping Linux-only jobs on the list made sense. But these are hash
economic times we're facing. People need the work.
Just my thoughts.
