Before the turn of the millennium of Windows users often considered a freak, Novell and Windows admins often ridiculed just tired, the Linux Admin wins today more and more importance and recognition. But what exactly makes him so special? Now the Linux administrator is proud to use a highly flexible and free operating system. He particularly appreciates the fact that he does not need a resource demanding graphical user interface on the server. He may only use it when needed, however, and he has won it a choice between many different desktop systems like the WindowMaker, KDE or Gnome, which in turn run only as a kind of essay on the "X server. This is the graphical interface on Linux, unlike Windows completely independent of the rest of the system and therefore, this graphical interface without a terminal server or Citrixlosungen for the use of other computers are set up. Linux is known that it can be adapted for various needs.
First, one can existing Solutions thanks to its open source code (open source) adapt themselves to the other ranges but mostly a look at the huge range of existing solutions and tutorials. Although a good Linux administrator at the same time should also master several programming languages, so the admin is sufficient often the Bash-Scripting for its activity because it can automate the already innumerable tasks and processes. One of the great advantages of Linux is that you can adjust everything from the bash. Another advantage of Linux is the plethora of very simple basic structure – after all, are for example the directory structure, the help system and the storage places for the important configuration files given and now also the most Linux distros have largely up to the standards. His knowledge is the Linux administrator eg through certificates for confirmation by the LPI. The part still represented assertion that Linux networks are more expensive in the administration, as solutions to Microsoft-based, is in practice numerous times by been the high-efficiency Linux solutions under the control of good admins refuted. All this is reason enough for the Linux administrator, to be proud of his work and its systems.
