    That edX one is a great resource, self-paced, free - what more could you ask for. I ran it 6 years ago (nearly, now), won't say what I scored out of 30, might do it again. Wiz

    If I was a betting man, I would have bet that @KGIII and Brian @Condobloke would weigh in, and I was not disappointed, nor with their offerings. G'day Gerard:) Linux is all about choices, choices you can't find so easily in other OSes. It's your choice to go with AV, your choice to go...
