there's lots of unix apps out there. While java is more native 
to sun, there's lots of jobs to grab in that platform from 
server apps to administration control and management or 
reporting tools... 

I know it's not multimedia as you would have expected but the 
down to business applications arent always needing fancy 
features, just sturdy operations and a nice little GUI...

cheers
Xavier
