Most NT "sysadmins" I know are a bunch of numbered toads who give up at the first sign of resistance. It doesn't help with me over there ragging on them by saying things like "See, if it were Open Source, I could figure out a fix" or "You know, perl is much better for that" or "Imagine that, my linux kernel runs perfectly fine with 64 megs of ram, yet your massive NT server running IIS 5 (laughable joke) runs out of 2 gigs of ram?"...
MS doesn't 'breed' sysadmins, they send them to 2 week crash courses! MCSE rarely ever means anything unless you happen to run into one who really does know what they're talking about...and if that happens, listen for the twilight zone music.
Yes, I'm a unix/linux/opensource bigot...
We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.
