I accidentally responded off list to this. Just to sum up: Yes. The companies list
has provisions for this. Even if your company uses Linux in a very limited role I
think it still belongs on the list. I've gotten some off-list feed back from
Jonathan in this regard. I'm working on adding an 'Additional OSs Used' field that
will show us what sort of integration issues companies might be facing. Please let
me know what you think.
