    Junior Linux System Engineer
  1. At the moment, a company uses Windows because people use Windows. A manager can't lose time to employees learning a new OS and relearning new reflexes. Just look for example to Libre Office vs Microsoft Office, everyone use the latter because they know it. Also, there is a trust issue with Linux. Windows has a dedicated team to deploy updates, support, etc. Linux often is done by volunteers in their free time, so there is not a trustworthy source in the eyes of the management. Most Linux used in servers is RedHat, because there's a dedicated and payed support. This support isn't there for Linux.
  2. Linux servers are: often more leightweight. use less hardware ressources highly customizable, starting from a very basic install free If you want to start to use Linux, I would recommend that you install Virtual Box on your PC, or use an old laptop. You can then install the desktop version of your favorite Linux distribution. I would say Fedora or Linux Mint. Once this is done, just use it as your daily machine, but try to do the most in command line. Nowadays Linux comes with a ood enough GUI that you don't necesarily need to go into the command line, but to install servers it's strongly advised to know it. Once you have a bit of a feeling, you can start replicating services you know of Windows Servers into Linux, for example DNS/DHCP. But as I said, if you start completely, just getting in touch with the OS is a start.
  3. Hey guys This is my first time choosing the parts for my PC. Very interesting experience, even though it's quite stressing as even now I have a build ready, I'm still not sure of my options. As such, could I please ask your advice on the following rig? In special if I took a correct PSU, CPU, Fan and case. I am for example thinking if I need the i7-6700k or buying the Dark Rock Pro 3 CPU Fan.

The SSD will later be changed to a Samsung EVO 850 250/512GB-like. 1. Budget & Location As you can see, my build is around 1000€. This is then also my budget for the PC. I'm ready to add 150€ if it will significantly increase the perfomance. If I can get cheaper parts for the same performance it's always better. I live in Belgium, but I can order parts in Germany. Ordering site will be alternate.be/de. 2. Aim I work as a junior sysadmin, and as such I'd like to improve my skills by learning. I will put for this a virtual lab in place on a Linux partition on my PC. It will at the highest point turn 10/15 Linux VM's. Because I want to access my PC from everywhere I would like one with WOL. I also want to use it as a good gaming PC. Point of reference would be the Witcher 3 in Ultra settings. Finally, the PC will be a multiboot of Fedora24/FedoraServer24/Windows10. 3. Monitors I will make budget for this later, but I would like min 2 Monitors, maybe 3, but unlikely. The resolution would be minimun FullHD, 1920*1080. 4. Peripherals I will need a keyboard. 5. Why are you upgrading? I have at the moment a laptop bought 3,4 years ago, an Asus N75 (i5-2450M 2.50GHz, 8GB DDR3 and a Nvidia GT 635M - 2GB). It still works, but it's getting behind or not even able to play the latest games. Also, the stockage on a laptop is not as high. I hope I was clear enough. If you have any question, please feel free to ask!
