I am certified on MCSE on Windows NT 4 and Windows 2003 so my experience is only on Windows and One of our clients want to migrate from Windows to Open Source Platforms and they have chosen Ubuntu Linux so i need to get knowledge on this operating system or other related FOSS platforms. What should I know about a migration to Ubuntu and where can I learn it?

    It may not really address much as far as actually preforming the migration, but I would recommend someone with your experience to set up a virtual Ubuntu box, using VMware or Microsoft's virtualization offerings and familiarize yourself with it. Grab an ISO download from Ubuntu's site and set it up in that virtualized PC. As would be expected, there are a number of differences. It would be better from your standpoint if you have seen them and learned how to get around them prior to your customer calling you voicing concerns. Ubuntu's forums are renown for having lots of users and lots of answers to questions posted there. So, support is decent from that aspect, although there are always exceptions. I'm personally trying out openSUSE now as well, as it seems to be pretty robust and familiar-looking enough for many previous Windows users out-of-the-box. But, I don't want to start a distro flame war, so I'll keep my musings to myself unless asked. ;)
