Cool Help!


I'm interviewing for a Linux desktop position in my dream town of the bay area. I'm new to Linux, but heavily versed in OSX client & server, & win Server & client from 2k forward, It will be Ubuntu stations on Cent OS servers, what's the worst ??

I don't even understand what you're asking ...

What's the worst what?

The fact that you're applying for a job in an area you have no
knowledge of?


Cheers,
Tink

If you are going to apply for Linux jobs, you need at least one Linux system at home; try Centos (free RHEL). You can use this manual as a starting pt http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html
OSX cli is *nix, but its a bit different to Linux.

I wouldn't say I don't know about it, I use osx every day, so I know my way around a terminal. But this is foreign to me. Because it looks and acts a lot the same but I kind of want to nor go in blind, I've used webadmin fir a "GUI " firva lot of Linux stuff but need to hack around the command line a bit
