I've been using Linux and Unix professionally since 1995, mostly in Linux-related sysadmin/systems architect jobs supporting academia. I generally know my stuff, but am very happy to learn something new and to be corrected when I'm wrong. Currently, I am the Fedora Project Leader.

comment How to remove a (group) of softwares that depend on one another?
Oooh. I don't think this is a duplicate. The grep-based solution is dangerous. Better to use yum's own wildcards or in some cases `yum --setopt="clean_requirements_on_remove=1"

comment Why is there an apt-get script set in my cron.daily, I'm on Fedora 20?
If you don't have any particular reason for it, I'd suggest removing it. The native package managers are much better maintained.

comment How to automate Linux server configuration?
@staticx Yes, this isn't comprehensive. There's a whole world of provisioning systems too: Cobbler, Foreman, Satellite/Spacewalk, FAI, Razor, and that's not even getting into cloud stuff.
