I’m no Linux expert, in fact the mere mention of Linux usually is enough to produce a cold sweat and agonising migraine that will last the rest of the day (is it just me or are even the most simple tasks annoyingly difficult??). If you are a Linux whizz-kid then these snippets are not for you (you probably knew all of these by the time you were eight), but if you are a Microsoft guy faced with trying to get SSH configured, tasked with joining that Debian server to your pristine Microsoft domain, or hell, even just trying to figure out what version of Linux is tormenting you so, then hopefully there is a useful morsel or two in here for you.

Good luck!
