Heh.  I got my first web development job back when pretty much anyone 
could hang a shingle outside their door and call themselves a web 
developer.  My company worked in a Linux/PHP/Perl/Oracle environment. 
While there I learned quite a bit about Perl and PHP and connecting both 
of them to Oracle, but you're quite right that none of the jobs out 
there these days advertise for OS skills of any sort.

I may end up moving out of the IT field altogether.  Things have been 
pretty tough.
