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.
