"TCG is a multi-platform shop, ready to work with whatever OSes, languages and tools a customer prefers, including Microsoft NT 4 and Windows 2000 as well as Sun Solaris, and Linux. Internally, however, TCG is primarily a *nix/Open Source environment.

'Before Linux, we were using Solaris,' recalls Turner, 'but we've been mostly using Linux since 1994. Similarly, Perl was our first language, although these days we're working mostly in Java, and sometimes in ColdFusion or ASP.
