I am mcse certified, I am tired of microsoft product changes and would like
to learn unix,

Is it easier to learn linux and which variant or better to learn sun solaris
2.7 ?

How much do I need to know to become a junior unix admin here in houston ?

I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas

Thanks

Andrew

I bs'ed my way into a junior unix admin job and was forced to learn
Solaris 2.6 and Red Hat linux in a hurry.  My opinion is that Red Hat
has become a little too fancy and is hiding all of the great thing about
*nix behind guis that aren't all that great, so I pretty much work out
of a buch of term windows even though there are guis that I could just
click on to get the same info.  I have heard good things about Debian
from some other Linuxheads that I work with, but have not tried it yet.
Solaris is a more secure OS in a network environment, and probably
carries a little more clout on a resume, don't ask me why.  I found that
most of the commands and utilities that I use are similar between the
two, the binaries and config files are just stored in different
directories.  If you know one *nix, then the adjustment time to move to
a new flavor of *nix is generally very short.

Load linux at home, there is tons of free sofware and documentation out
there.

My experience was skind of similar to Matt's - I started out by playing
around with Linux and got hooked. The company I was working for,
however, wasn't interested in Linux / UNIX so I quit (now that Linux is
a hot item they're actively looking for... you guesed it!), found me a
new job and now I'm a junior administrator, working with Red Hat and
Solaris. At home I prefer Slackware and in my opinion it's a great
distro to gain some real UNIX / Linux skills.
