Yes but if that is all the article is about...might as well reflect it 
in the title too. You can setup raid after installation yadi, yada.

:-D. Created by yours truly when he switches jobs leaving Centos systems 
behind. :-P

The list of Linux-related jobs in Hong Kong pitiably small. Too many 
PHBs over here with loads of cash (but stingy on pay) and willing to 
dish out the stuff for Microcrap. Positions with a bit more pay in Hong 
Kong are usually listed in the local English newspaper by SCMP. Ads 
usually are also posted on the Net at www.classifiedpost.com. I have 
this friend who has been using Linux for the company he works for for 
years and then a dumb PHB comes in (boss' son) and tries to get him 
fired and everything converted to Microsoft. He even tried to get the 
inhouse developed finance system completely replaced by a multi-million 
HKD Microsoft-based solution (Navision) which was basically crap and did 
not improve on things much (unstable yadi yada). Too bad the crunch came 
in before they could completely implemented everything. The best part 
was that the guys who were doing the Navision consultation saw my 
friend's inhouse stuff and asked him if he was selling it.

I guess that is why there is not much HK Chinese involvement in Centos. 
They are too busy keeping their PHBs sane.
