For those of you out there that have taken the Linux plunge or are thinking about it here is a site you might want to look into. Linux System Administration This site is new and doesn't have a lot of traffic that I can see at this time but it is very professionally run and runs entirely on Linux. Sites like this can do a lot to further your learning process in this area as they gather momentum.
Ham radio operators are going to need more and more networking skills in the future for digital modes if we are going to provide emergency communications and stay up with the state of the art in networking radios. Your home networking skills will translate to useful attributes at the local club, on field day and in situations like we encountered during previous hurricane seasons.
Now before anyone gets their knickers in a twist I'm not advocating turning all communications over to computers or digital modes. Morse Code and voice are still going to be the primary means that we talk with each other and provide aid. I'm just saying that computers and digital modes are another tool you should have in your box for the hobby.
