I just attended a one day training session on Linux. Sadly the training session was rather lame primarily because it was marketed as a hands-on lab and was definitely not. Over the past four years I’ve always made a very half hearted effort in attempting to move toward Linux and have never successfully made the transition.
However, today was another reminder that I really have to move completely toward the platform and find alternatives to products required to get my work done. Personally, I would like to enjoy remaining in my Microsoft world, but the economics of the market seem to have swayed a large portion of the users I support toward considering Linux.
So eventhough the training was lame, I still walked away with enough training material to start preparing to support the platform for the rest of the users.
