Every company that uses or distributes Linux _should_ have at least
one ILUG member on staff. I certainly wouldn't run a linux affiliated
company in Ireland without joining the mailing list and advocating
that my staff do likewise. It's such a perfect market ground to build
the company's profile in the community. So no, I reckon a company
that's in any way clued in should have the wherewithall to recommend
themselves so I'll be voting No on proposition 45. I like the idea of
members rating the companies though.
