So who was the one who said either was "easy"?

I said it takes a higher
talent level to generally administer a un*x box than a windows box. I don't
think that just because you can think of something thats not easy to do
in windows makes any point at all. The fact that a un*x guy had
to be called in to solve the problem says alot about the type of talent that
is required to do most things that windows techs do.


I agree with you. However, it wasn't I that posed that question. :)
