And those forward thinking people who embraced Linux a decade ago, will
now have decent, highly sought after Linux/Unix admin skills.
Those that now "see the light" and switch to Linux have 10 years of daily
Linux work to catch up.
There is *no* shortcut.
What a shame for the Wintroll Erik Funkenbreath who has learnt *nothing*
about Linux in the last decade he has been trolling here.
If we wish to reduce our ignorance, there are people we will
indeed listen to. Trolls are not among those people, as trolls, more or
