Looking for some advice.  I've been a M$ programmer for a while (ASP,
VB.Net, etc) but always kept a small amount of Perl knowledge in my
back pocket so I could miraculously glue everything together.  Now I
am being faced with a shift in environments.  Unix is the route my
department is taking and I must adapt.  I have heard a couple
suggestions about transitioning over - CoLinux, running RedHat under
VMWare, buying an old pc and putting Debian on it....      

Basically I want to be able to learn more about Unix basics and do it
on my laptop - without changing over my main operating system.  Any
suggestions from the group?  Any experiences with CoLinux?  

Thanks for any help,
