in thread Perl For Windows System Administration

I have a saying:
Saying you're a Windows Sys Admin is like saying you're a Flight Simulator Pilot.

Guess what I do for a living. (Please God give me the chops to be a Unix admin!)

There's more than one way to do it, but only some of them actually work.

    I am not a Windows Sys Admin, nor do I care to be one. But I have a lot of respect for those who do the job and do it well. Large Windows networks are not necessarily easy to administer just because most of the admin tools are GUI based, or because it's cool to hate Microsoft, or...

    If you'd rather be a Unix admin than a Windows Admin, that's cool. I'm just saying good Windows admins are as valuable as good Unix admins.

    I realize this is OT, so I'll try to redeem myself. A good Windows admin will use scripting to get the job done better, faster, and with more fun. A really good one will use Perl for even more fun. :)
