What do you think about Linux Administration as a career? It's a good choice? It's very hard?

billgates: RedHat certified administrators are always in demand.


Wow what a quote from Bill

Are you looking at re-skilling?




Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

Given most of the worlds web servers run on linux, demand is huge. Red Hat is a good choice, but Debian and Ubuntu servers dominate the web space in linux.




Support a locally made Linux based Operating System, try Linux Lite.

Based on?  I personally prefer Debian for a webserver, but find myself supporting more and more RHEL based (be it Centos, RHEL, or something like Amazon Linux AMI's)

The better question to ask yourself is whether you have an aptitude for Linux administration, and are you genuinely interested in it?

If not, it doesn't matter what path is the "good choice" because ultimately you won't be happy.
