That'* where I'm lacking. I'm a major hardware geek, but when it comes to software, I'm usually stuck. I can troubleshoot the hell out of Windows, but I've gotten too lazy to mess with setting up Linux.

Linux is the wave of the future. It is such a stable system, and many businesses are switching to it.


Another thing to learn is Windows Server. It'* so much different than XP. You can learn alot about networking from that.

I learned all I cared to know about networking in my MCSE classes! Enough to know I don't wanna do it for a living after all!!

And as long as I like playing the newer games, and as long as I have the kids, I'm stuck with windows.

Speaking of games, to twist the topic here a bit, you gotta try Worms 3D. It hasn't been released in the states yet, but it is fun! Been playing it the last few days and laughing my hiney off!! Getting it kicked too.

And for those that like to play online, Americas Army 2.0 just came out, which has a Linux and a Mac version. And, it'* FREE!!!

I played the demo for Worms3d. It was tricky. I think I liked Worms Armageddon a lot better.
