i have a simple "test" i've given to prospective employees:
i create a user account on one of my servers, start a screen session,
and have them log in and attach to the session (that way i can see what
they're doing). i then say "you have fifteen minutes to tell me
everything you can about this machine. go." it will quickly become
apparent how much linux they really know.
