Well you've got one over me there, Phil. I never *had* any Windows 
skills. Not what I'd call skills anyway, although when I see some of the 
people who "support" Windows I do wonder.

I am fortunate, I think, that at work we have a Windows server 
department who not only actually do know Windows servers, but also 
comprehend that there is a world outside which they need to coexist 
with. Of course, I take the same attitude and cooperate with them. We 
have mutual respect between our departments and neither would like to do 
the other's job.
