    I've seen a job that asks for some Unix experience, but this isn't absolutely necessary.

    This got me thinking about looking into what Unix is about.

    I found this though google http://www.ugu.com/
    Seems to have a good beginners section.
    Is their a pure version of Unix, then lots of hybrids, like Linux.

    Anyway, you get the idea, which is that I have no idea :idea:

    The advice I've always been given as far as Linux and UNIX goes is that you pretty much have to live/eat/sleep/breathe them to really learn them. Having UNIX experience is a whole other world than having Windows experience. Just my thoughts.

    There is no "Pure" version on UNIX. They all have their good and bad points. I use HPUX 10 and 11 for work but started out on SCO and to add a bit more into the Mix am using Linux aon a number of servers.

    Being a command line junkie prefer to use it in NT as well - it normally scares the c**p out of other people but you can really control what goes on.
