Tux Machines (TM)-specific
One of the cool things about Linux? Remote administration. I could log into the server from afar and do stuff. I didn’t have to go down to the data center, use a KVM switch and look at a NT GUI.
I remember remote administration, industrial strength servers running on Intel processors that scaled and lots of developers working on the core system. Those were the days when geeks were men!
Well, I just got another dose of Microsoft in the form of Fedora Linux. I started installing their free directory server and what a mess. Actually, it’s a kluge. It’s broke like Red Hat 5.0 was broke. But now, you have to use a KVM switch and look at a desktop even after you figure out how to make it work.
