With large firms making attempts to equip themselves better with the latest technology so as to maintain their edge over the competition; this seems to be a good time to be a technology professional. However, it’s even a better time to be into Linux system administration. How? We will see it here.

I'm too busy pursuing women. At my age, they can all run faster than me.

A combination of Linux AND Windows admin skills is much more valuable at the moment.

Yes, the combination would open opportunities. Linux is certainly gaining ground in the server arena. Migration with IT for Win admin to train for Linux admin has been increasing and will continue too.

My signature was changed before that to show;

Your statement is;
Quote:
I'm a slacker by nature, a Slacker by choice.
Two different statements.

I will not change my sig since the stated does reflect a different meaning.

Enough said! I will get back on topic.

Don't want to hijack this thread...but also don't want to start another similar thread. I currently work in IT and would like to move toward a career in Linux. I want to know if there are any suggestions for good self paced training that can prepare one for a career as a Linux sys admin? I don't mind paying for training if it's good (I do get tuition reimbursement from work) but I can't take traditional classes that would be during business hours because this doesn't directly apply to my current job. So, are there any worthwhile on line training courses /certificates that can be done on my schedule and cover a logical progression of topics that one would need to learn for an entry into professional linux admin work?

Be sure to check out the link in the OP for useful Linux eBooks.

These links can be useful;
Plus be sure to look at LQs' Tutorials

You can find more useful links at Slackware®-Links. More than just Slackware Links!

There loads of commercial Gnu/Linux courses/books.
Hope this helps.
