    What, are you going to tell on us Webman ?

    Is taking the p*** out of CC3 any different from your objections to Apple and the OS X platform. Difference is people outside of primary and education use and abuse Apple hardware and software on a daily basis.
    So any mac admin skills you have would come in handy if going for a job at a college, uni and in some areas of the corporate sector. Can't say the same about CC3.

    No, I'm not as childish as you.

    The difference here is that you are being disrespectful to people who manage and work on RM networks. I only gripe about apple and their products - not the people who use them.

    Just because we use CC3 does not mean we are incompetent idiots and does not mean we don't posess other valuable skills.

    This has been gone over again and again and you may as well say any one using Windows servers are lazy as 'Nix is the only true way, or we should only use Mac stuff as anything else is obviously for clueless people as they can't work out windows is rubbish, etc etc.

    Well done, instead, for making a clueless post with uniformed opinions.
    God, never thought I'd see the day where CCbloody3 was added to the flame wars.

    Unix, Linux, Windows and Macs are used in practically ever sector. Some more so than others. There can't be many that haven't implemented or are thinking about using solutions from the big 4. I'd also like to add that I'm keen on Netware as another option - and if you've got the money and business need ibm's i5/OS (AS400 to most people) and z/OS mainframes are also used by sysadmins all over the world. There's room for almost everything solution that has an operational benefit and it's up to IT managers and admins to choose the right solutions. Some companies might have an old JD Edwards ERP system and the advanced hardware partitioning capabilities and reliability of an iseries solution is why that is chosen. They choose a solution that in some areas is a clear advantage for what they're trying to do.

    What does CC3 do that the current tools available to Windows system managers can't do. OR that can't be achieved by a bit of scripting.

    and I would also argue CC3 is a niche that doesn't have a millionth of the significance of other niches such as z/OS so why the hell bother with it.

    Good *nix admins have a right to feel smug and superior over windows-only admins. Similarly windows-proper admins have a right to feel superior to those who rely on CC3. Deal with it. If you're a *nix and CC3 admin you're a strange creature.

    Gentlefolk.

    A polite reminder to respect the abilities and choices of other members over how they run their networks and their choice (if any) of middleware.

    Do *not* have a go at each other over the choices to run CC3, different OSes, different hardware.

    Inform others that you have found solution x to be poor due to a, b & c so you now use solution y, or say that you find solution x to be good as it allows you to do d, e & f and any other benefits.

    We should not have a go at one another about what people use when they make informed decisions about what is out there, only gnash our teeth when it is all due to ill-informed hype, commercial backhanders, pressure from people who don't know what they are doing or ill-advised politics.

    This has been a polite request to all, not singling out any specific post.

    Failure to follow this will mean posts may be edited or removed and members may be suspended. This is a community, people disagree but do it with some respect for one another. Personal attacks will not be tolerated

    Re: Research Machines

    I think it is best summed up as:

    1. Windows is crap
    2. CC3 is crap
    3. *nix is crap
    4. OS X is crap
    5. we are all crap.

    But each in its/own individual and special way.

    Re: Research Machines

    Funny how every thread that happens to descend into name calling and personal abuse tends to feature many posts from a certain Mr.torledo.

    Your network admin skills appear to be top notch but maybe you should spend some time and engage some of your vast brainpower learning some soft skills?

    I'll just say I'm glad and I haven't chosen CC3. I'm happy with what I work with, and what am planning to work with. CC3 isn't in our future plans
    but it obviously works for you...so good luck to you. And buy an imac already!!!

    What can I say ? I can get a bit carried away butman. However, you can't say I'm abusing people that's ridiculous. Mild mockery is not personal abuse.

    It's ok, I can see your the type of guy who will call me butman, not Butuz just to try and inject a little more personal abuse "under the radar".

    Guess learning soft skills will probably not change the inherant weakness in your peronality complex :P
