Not more learning than any other linux/unix.

What should I say? I've choosen Debian GNU/Linux because it's free. And
it's package concept is more sophisticated than any other (rpm, ...).

After learning a bit about using unix as a USER, I have decided, to me a
unix admin too. It was not so difficult. If you know ONE system in deep,
you can learn every system. There are parallels all the time.

It doesn't cost you so much (in Germany, you will get a CD from
J.F.Lehmanns, Berlin for only DM 20,-).

Try it, use it, love it and never leave it.
