Please delete this post if it is deemed spamming the forums, since I have a couple of similar posts. This seemed like a good place to post this question. So if I want to download a free Unix/UNIX software/operating system with the express purpose of learning UNIX and learning to be a UNIX system admin (junior, entry level) what would you suggest? I was looking at freeBSD seems like the best option including learning about servers. Ubuntu seems easiest to learn and work with and will still teach me all the basic UNIX commands but openSolaris is perhaps the best installation to help me enter the workforce sooner? I'm simplifying I know. Any advice? If I was left to my own devices at this point in time I would attempt freeBSD. Have a couple of old computers in the garage that I can load up and get cracking with.

I would suggest to begin with Solaris and RHEL/CentOS/OEL.
I don't have any real production experience with BSD servers.

hmm okay will do. First though I have Ubuntu to load an play with and then I'll load freeBSD and see what happens and probably go to solaris from there. lol
