Dear..friends...

I am about to jump in the 7th semester of my engineering studies(B.Tech) and from this semester companies will start coming for the campus placements.

Now my obvious choice is going to be software companies and certainly since Linux is my strong point i am going to talk about the little work i have done in Linux.

Though i have done a lot of programming on Linux(C,C++,QT,PHP,Shell Prog etc) But i can't say the same for the windows platform.So the questions they will ask is :-

1.Why software should be free??( or at least open)
2.We don't develop any free softwares,why should we take you???
3.Let's say you join our company and we assign you a project and you will be invloved in development of non-freen,non-open software!!Then why and how will you change your ideology??
4.Why so much affinity towards Linux??( though this question has been asked in this forum,but think on it from point of view of a company interview)


This is just a small list but i am sure once i start talking about Linux..I will be bombarded with such type of questions..because Profits and free software doesn't go together very well!!!

Hi,

guess what , when I started to learn linux, I asked a local computer dealer, and he told me that even win95 is better for a server machine then any distro of linux smile.gif ,....


... later the same guy tried to hack my computer, and he told me to turn on the computer because he cannot ping my machine smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif


I think that linux is a lot better for a server then windows , since if it's once configured it needs little to no adjusting later it just works... I had my server up and running for 43 days smile.gif and that is something new for me.


By the way would you girls and guys tell me what is your server uptime record ?


Sincerely
Robert B
