 As for my Computing Ultimate goal : Unix/Linux Architect

Programming experience: C, C++, Java ME (some simple cell phone game),
DOS/NT Batch, Korn, Posix, BASH Shell, vbscript, javacript

Learning(in-progress) C#, Assembler, Java, Java FX, Perl and Python

Network: I used to be a LAN cable installer (cat 4, 5) I have setup small
LANs with Solaris and Windows NT/2003 Server.

So I do want to master technician/admin/engineer skills of LInux in order to
be a solution architect.

Device Drivers, Kernel modules, OS design, LDAP,
network integration/management, virtualization , web infrastructure,

are the things I wish to learn more of. I want to start by managing Linux
