For a lot of people out there, the most fundamental aspect of a job description is whether you are designing something or not...
I can mostly agree with this statement.
...whether it is Linux or free software, and what language is involved are of secondary or even tertiary importance.
I am (or used to be) a systems programmer. I currently have the misfortune of having to code in Visual Basic. My previous project was coded in python (Thank God!), but targeting the Windows platform.
I can assure you, platform and language will be of primary importance in the selection of my next job.
