So yeah – it’s green lights all the way on both jobs. I just have to decide which one I really want.
One is all Redhat linux. The other is a mixture of 60% Windows servers, 40% Linux.
Here’s the conundrum.
Windows can be a pain in the ass to manage. One errant update from Microsoft will make it so you’ll have a very bad day indeed.
Now the other job – as I said All Linux. It has the possibility of permanency but it’s an isolated bunch of boxen. No net connection allowed to the outside. So it makes updates challenging.
Now the latter – that one has huge opportunities to innovate. It’s just the prestige factor isn’t really there.
