Company says I will learn it and teach it to all - so here we go...

Welcome to LQ, TPT! We're in the same genre - my first working computer experience was an IBM S/360/20. I always say the best way to learn something is to teach it to someone else...

Plenty of help here, don't be shy about asking (and you probably know how to ask *well* by now...

You only need to know that linux is not some oddball deal. The concepts that you have learned will just be used in linux with new names usually and new options.

You might talk your company into a boot camp for Red Hat too.
