SME I.T. consultant.
Other than cabling (i don't run CAT6 through walls and stuff like that - that's the sparky's job :P ), the scope of my services includes everything required to go from empty office to fully operational network incl. server with RAID, mail serving, etc. and i'm not afraid to get my hands dirty messing with 3rd-party industry-specific software. Included in the service is liasing with other technology providers on behalf of my clients (i.e. if you try to fuck my clients over I am the very nasty, un-confusable, un-intimatable, got-the-industry-ombudsman-on-speed-dial attack dog that will be sent at you. It yields some fun times, and some long waits on hold :P )

Although I primarily deploy MS Windows (because I have no choice - industry specific softwares :-[ ), I do offer Linux services and do have 2 Debian servers deployed and operating (one actual, one a cloud VM) for clients. (Though it looks like the VM is going to get shut down soon. :-\ )
I don't deal with home/personal users much (intentionally), but when I do I offer and will roll out Linux workstations to the right type of user.

I'm a food tester.
The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.
