Formerly known as "Jimmy Shelter".

Then one appeared among us, in our own form visible, but greater and more beautiful; and he said that he had come out of pity.

I'm like the Clint Eastwood of backups. I drift into town, say "ahm-a gonna clean up yer backups", shoot the place up a bit, get rid of the bad guys, then drift back out again.

Been there, done that, still doing it.

Orca's been great for editing of installer options, but I certainly wouldn't use it for the full packaging job!

comment As a Windows administrator, what were the issues you encountered with trying to learn a linux distro?
+1 for the "build it" comment: this is a major falling-down point for Linux. It really needs to shake off it's "primary target audience is programmers" thing before it can gain more widespread use.

comment RAID or batch copy on scheduler?
+1 likewise. It's a common enough misconception, so there's no harm in the OP thinking it was an option.

comment What is preventing you from deploying desktop Linux in your environment?
PST files - ugh! Outlook with Exchange doesn't need PST files, so that argument seems valid only in limited circumstances.
