My home data center has far too much enterprise hardware -- especially if you count the ZyXEL GigE switch, which I unfortunately can't recommend for actual enterprises, even if it was 24 ports, fully managed, for $500. At work, I've pretty much done everything—mostly Linux and storage; but also Windows, routers/switches, firewalls, Solaris, telephones... still no professional experience with VMS, but maybe that's a good thing.

Products of choice: OpenBSD, Debian, OS X, Solaris 101, Fedora.

Certifications: RHCE, GSEC, GCIA.

Well, you can have multiple subnets on the same physical network, but you don't really want to.

Linux is for people who hate Microsoft, and BSD is for people who love Unix. Or so they say.

comment Is anyone using GPS for time sync?
$3000 is about the cost of Windows 2008 Server Enterprise with 25 CALs, RHEL AP for one server with 24/7 support, or (fully loaded) a $100k/year employee for four days. If you require accurate time in a non-Internet-connected network, and your PHBs won't give Symmetricom what they're asking, please try to avoid slicing a wrist open on their pointy hair -- it's quite sharp.

Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
