I said I was going to do it and I did. I built a Ubuntu Linux box yesterday. It's not my first, but each time I build one it gets put aside for other projects that are more pressing. I know that as a Security Professional I should be very familiar with Linux already but now there are too many good tools that have been ported to Windows and it hasn't been necessary. This time I really plan on learning Linux and implementing it in my job. There are several tools out that don't have a windows counterpart that I've been wanting to try and now I will. I'll write about my experiences as I go through this learning process. It will be a process that much I know for a fact. I decided on Ubuntu because I had several people tell me that it was the most user friendly for those who have been stuck in the windows world for years. So far it's going OK. I haven't done much yet outside of getting it up and running and checking out some of the features. If anyone has any hints or tips that will be helpful I'd love to hear them.
