Re: Platinum accounts for the Internet (was Re: who offers cheap (personal) 1U colo?)

I expect, that good (tier-3, to say) network engineer MUST know Windows and
Unix (== Linux, FreeBSD etc) on tear-2 (or better) level. Else, he will not
be able to troubleshout his _network problem_ (because they are more likely
complex Network + System + Application + Cable problem).

So, it is not a good answer.
