from an administrative standpoint, each flavour of UNIX is decidedly
different than the other. from a user perspective, it's much the same.

between man pages, some reading, and use, it takes very little to pick up
another UNIX-clone and know enough about it to understand what's going on.

Going from Linux to Plan9, though, would be a large leap.
