Mixing metaphors

Jon Buys is trying to explain about Maturing as a Linux Systems Administrator and it may be he’s been watching a few popular movies:

After dealing with Linux for over a decade, you come to the understanding that Linux, like ogres and onions, has layers. As soon as you think you have a good solid understanding of something, you can peel it back and look at the layers underneath, and realize that much to learn, still you have.

He says that one of the greatest signs of a mature systems administrator is patience. Getting the job done takes time and it can’t be rushed. That is well worth considering.
