Linux Tux - with a flamethrower

This is a momentous day. I have finally purged the last remaining Windows server from my network!

The Great Cull of 2004 began, you may remember, with the cleansing of my media server back in August. I subsequently eradicated Windows from my "scratch", "development" and proxy servers.

Only the file server remained, along with 1.5TB of business-critical data. Today, after making two complete backups, I eradicated Windows from that server - replacing it with a shiny new copy of Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS.

The transition from Windows to Linux has been easy, relatively painless and performed with a smug grin!
