I have been learning to use Samba (a Unix equivalent to Windows Server). Samba is used to network Windows and Linux machines. It is being finicky. I am doing most of this in VMWare Player. It is fun getting school credit to learn to do something I would have wanted to learn about on my own anyways. I also aim to learn Apache (a webserver), Xen (similar to VMWare only linux only), and tons of other server software. I hope to have a full Linux web server soon enough. Linux has been awsome on the desktop, and I can't wait to see it on the server.
In other news Microsoft has released Windows Vista. I am curious. I have heard from some it is a lot better, but I have heard from some it is far worse. I will stick with XP for my Windows partition as it is pointless to upgrade an old PC, I would only use Vista if it comes with a PC or if you really need something such as DirectX 10. Vista ain't nearly as good as Linux, I know that.
