    1. Before having a look at this video, I had already started to play with ansible myself. Yours is a great introduction, but I think that you missed another important use case for ansible: provision your own workstations, not necessarily servers. For example, you have a playbook for setting up an Ubuntu distribution on your laptop and desktop, another one for doing the same with Manjaro, etc. At least in my very case, that's what I'm going to use ansible for.

    2. Thanks Jay.. I've really learnt a lot on your channel..I'm grateful for the quality content you give out here..I actually learnt everything about Linux here and I'm really comfortable using Linux now coming from the work of windows.. but then I started setting up VPSs and deploying applications for businesses and in a quest for having a lot more comfortable sys-Admin tool, I got to know about webmin-Virtualmin… I easily set this up on any VPS and get everything working but the biggest hitch is the Postfix mail server, it never sends or receive emails, so I really do wish you could do a series on webmin-Virtualmin and how to get Postfix functional on it…Thanks a million Jay..
