    G'day from me Laz-Man.

    So do you have any experience in networking or do you just like words like Cisco, router, switch, ATM, Frame Relay, OSPF, RIP? :rolleyes:

    I am sure that past experience will come in very handy. I think a lot of newbies to IT these days find things more difficult to understand because they lack the experience which Windows 3.x and Win9x gave us. Things are too wizard driven these days IMHO.

    Good luck!

    Pete

    Wow, you fella's are really bright and chirpy... I guess I am at the right place and I guess I am in the presence of actual adults... :biggrin Or people who act their age...

    So many forums on the web now are moderated by 11 year old's with PC World PC's...

    Apart from the very rare occasion that someone mentions Linux+ I see no point in extolling the virtues of Bash over DOS when such a large percentage of this forums members are studying A+, N+ and Microsoft Certs. Understanding MSDOS is fundamental to grasping Windows concepts, especially installations and network roll outs.

    From what I have seen of Boyce's A+ questions, Comptia are still pushing people to grasp the concepts of older operating systems, especially DOS. It is at this level, that things are configured by hand, no wizards, no plug and play.

    Where does Bash fit into all of this? :blink

    Once these people have mastered the most prolific OS on the planet, then I think it would be a good time to start delving into the Open source alternatives. I am very impressed with Open Office but Linux I am afraid still doesn't feel anywhere near as nice as Windows 2000 pro. If I have to pay for an OS as good as W2K Pro, then so be it!

    PS I know you were only kidding but you rattled my chain and I felt obliged to speak :biggrin
