Redhat video training

Posted 12-08-2009 at 09:59 PM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)
Updated 12-08-2009 at 10:02 PM by jaymarting (Make pretty)

Background
I've been in IT for over 4 years now and playing around with linux just over two of those. Ive recently been getting a little more serious about my training as I reported in my entry about my Preplogic training purchase. And while I want to claim that I fight the good fight the reality is that my tiny company is still primarily windows based despite efforts to bring them over to linux.

Issue
It's because of this that I wasn't concerned that my PrepLogic training...

Linux in a Nutshell review

Posted 12-02-2009 at 08:46 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

Users of free Unixes won't agree with the title of Linux in a Nutshell. The fact is much of the book is actually focused on GNU or BSD utilities and not specifically Linux.

Linux is a lost cause!

Posted 11-14-2009 at 06:40 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

This is the quote I was told earlier this week by a colleague. "Linux is a lost cause."

HAS LINUX LIVED UP TO ITS PROMISE?

I don't for a second agree that Linux is truly lost but I do certainly agree with my friend and colleague that the promise Linux fortune tellers made has not come to pass. As we close in on 2010, I harken back 10 years to promises of a nearly dead Microsoft and a world run almost entirely by Linux. Good, bad or otherwise that just has...
