I have recently switched to a new job where I am working on Sun Solaris servers. Having worked on Linux servers for the last few years, it’s taken me a few days to remember some of the old commands that you need to use to work on a SVR4 server. For example, I had forgotten about pkginfo instead of rpm. It has also helped me appreciate Linux and the extra features that are added by real users with great ideas. For example, I’ve begun to appreciate how simple but effective the locate/updatedb commands are.
