I’ve been spending time listening to Eli the Computer Guy. I haven’t listened to ALL of his videos yet but he’s done a great job introducing the basics of servers and desktops in the Linux world.
One perspective I particularly enjoyed was his belief that an external consultant, like himself, should always check around to see who would be taking over his role should he be unavailable the next time the servers need some work AND LEARN WHICH VERSION OF LINUX that person is most comfortable using. I consider this to be polite…apparently some external consultants don’t do this.
I also like the idea he pushes that you do not have to know the “in and outs” of all the the different Linux flavors out there, but you do need to know they exist and you’ll need to spend some time learning how to get things done using the flavor being used by the company that hired him.
I do suggest you spend some time with Eli The Computer Guy.
Maybe you will figure out which flavor of Linux he prefers? 🙂
