Yes, but so what? Unix != NT. Why shouldn't someone with no exposure to
Unix be unfamiliar with it when first placed in a Unix environment? It's not

I kinda smiled at the article's implication that the "NT admin" was the
base unit of admin currency. If one of them can't 'handle the
complexity...without retraining', why, linux *must* be crap :)
