Linux can be found anywhere these days, free distributions everywhere. Some like to say that they master Linux because they know how to install or configure Linux on a server. Nobody cares about that anymore and its not important on your CV or resume’ – and your paycheck will suck.
UNIX administrators are the ones that get the high pay, Especially the Commercial Unix admins.
This is Costel, a commercial UNIX machine that was given to me by a cool guy from Bucharest that I hope I will meet in person some day.
Costel is an IBM 7011-250 (re-badged as Bull DPX-20 / 100, was produced for the European market so it could be bought on EU founds. This PC is a PowerPC! 🙂
