"I am not at all interested in Windows XP and I am unfamiliar with that OS"

What type of "graduate in Computer Science and Engineering" has no clue about the Windows OS? Windows has 90% of the marketshare worldwide...Linux has less than 1%. So you have no intention of ever learning about Windows? You're not going to be much of a computer engineer without it.

http://www.netmarketshare.com/repor...

If there are no drivers available for Linux, then there's not much you can do about it. But if there are drivers available for Windows, then the solution is obvious...INSTALL WINDOWS!

I can see the job interview now:

Interviewer: Well, Mr johnpaul, I see you have a degree in Computer Science and Engineering, so can I safely assume that you're well schooled in both Windows & Linux OS?

johnpaul: Uh, no. I don't like Windows so I didn't bother to learn about it.

Interviewer: We use Linux on our server but other than that, all our employees use Windows? I'm sorry, but we need someone who is well educated in both OS, not just a "one trick pony". I'm very sorry. Good day sir.

johnpaul: Uh, OK, thanks anyway.

Interviewer: NEXT!

**johnpaul walks away wondering if there are still jobs available at the local fish market**
