Linux Consultants = Maytag Repair People

The Tech Republic has one of the most awesome articles I have read in a long time.  The main theme of the article is that Linux Consultants, unlike Windows Consultants, are like Maytag repair people.  As a former consultant supporting both Linux and other *nix versions I have to say this is so true.  My largest problem was convincing my remotely hosted customers was getting them to upgrade the hardware they were on and doing major updates to the Linux and the LAMP stack.  While this is amazing for customers it means that Linux consultants have to have larger groups of customers and can take on larger numbers of customers than their Windows counterparts.

Windows Admin’s try not to be haters…..Linux admins just have it better on this front.  The article is well written and funny and a fun way to start off your Friday.(or any day for that matter)
