Hmmm. Yes, I think I probably fall into that category :-)

But I think the difference is that Unix admins tend to bring an "enterprise"
mentality to their home systems, where Windows admins tend to bring a home
PC mentality to their work systems, which goes a long way to explaining why
so many businesses have problems with their Windows PCs. Yes, it's a trite
answer, but there's too much truth to it for comfort...
