Personally, I get a huge rush out of finally understanding any underlying OS mechanism which has seemed mysterious and "magic" for a long time. Everyone is different, of course, and I find the code and the architecture far more fascinating than the "skinning" and customisation ... who cares what the start button looks like! The interesting part is how it "knows" to light up when you hover over it with the mouse pointer

A bit of both, and I think both are important. Formal education has a way of providing structure which may otherwise be lacking for all but the most disciplined individuals (I'm not anywhere near that group, sadly). After-hours study done out of personal interest is what (eventually) distinguishes a real expert from the hordes of university graduates who are only beginning their journey.

I don't actually consider myself "taught". Learning is an ongoing process, and it's the whole point of the ex3rcise.

Comments on NAS choice
Hi, This is my first foray into NAS. I have been doing some reasearch and have decided that the Thecus N2200 offers what I need for an entry level storage server (to date I have been relying on USB drives). I'll probably configure it in a RAID1 array with 2 x 1.5TB Samsungs since this will...
