Klaatu covers the very very basics of servers: what they are, how to know one when you see one, what one ought to run, and why we have them.

Thanks! I made a connection!
This is so silly, but I had not recently realized the aptness of the terms server and client. You explained so clearly that a server computer serves a _client_ computer. Thank you!

Nice start, Klaatu! I'll make sure to point junior sysadmins to this series!
So was the third option, which isn't really around anymore, Solaris? ^^ Because the OpenSolaris fork illumos is in fact, 6 years after Bryan Cantrill's "Fork Yeah! The Rise and Development of illumos" USENIX talk, still around. It's the base for distributions like Joyent's SmartOS and the database appliance Delphix ;) And upstream for OpenZFS, too!

I've been running servers since before you were born,,, 1975. And I am enjoying this series. It's good to have a series on these taboo things you know...
