Hiya Everyone,

I would like to seek employment with an employer wise enough to use Linux as their main operating system in the UK. I mean using Linux for everyday tasks not programming or IT Support.

I know the French Police, Turkish Government, China Government and recently North Korean Government employ Linux as there OS of choice.

Can anyone provide any answers to my question, as I believe a good working knowledge of Linux to be a very positive plus point to the right employer (small businesses maybe).
