The difference is the tools we're talking about are both freely
available at no cost.  It doesn't cost the employer anything one way
or the other.  It's like me walking into an interview with a craftsman
hammer and having the employer say, 'sorry we only use brandX hammers

I never said he shouldn't know how to use a hammer... only that the
employer shouldn't care which kind he uses.
