I have had computers in my life since the mid eighties, and somehow ended up earning my living out of being really good at doing IT. Discovered Linux about 7 years ago, and am now a full convert.

comment Advice needed on system requirements
-1 for "closed-source nonsense software from Microsoft". This is not a flaming site and you have no right to judge the internal policies of the company raklos works for (and in case there's any doubt on the subject: I am linux user and fan).

+1 for the LART (I use my voice as an acoustic LART, it generally produces lots of reddish skin and high levels of reluctance to repeat the experience, but is otherwise undetectable).

comment How many subnets can I create (max) inside of the network 192.168.123.X/26? And why?
The "X" is any permissible value that identifies one of the 4 /26 networks within 192.168.123.0/24, i.e. 0, 64, 128 or 192. Other than that it has no impact on the answer to your question.

Please read en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classless_Inter-Domain_Routing for details. This article contains numerous links to the various RFC documents going to extreme detail. If you get taught anything different, then your teachers are out of sync with reality.

My understanding of a /26 network is that the 26 highest bits of any address pertaining to the subnet are fixed (as per the standard definition of classless networking, CIDR), which then leaves the remaining 6 bits for hosts or subnets within the network.
