Well, I've been at a job interview...

The guy there explained what I'd do (manage lots of proprietary
software) and a shady method of payment.

When I said I wasn't interested, after all, he asked if what scared me
was the shady method, and I replied I was ok with it, what I couldn't
tolerate was to deal with all that proprietary software they had.

I wonder if he noticed that in my resume was [intentionally] absent the
knowledge of Windows (only GNU/Linux and OpenBSD), and if the keyphrase:
Expert in Free Software did ring any bells at all.

I bet my answer was susrprising enough :) he seemed interested, but
refusing because of the software they use must've been a shock!!!!!
