FWIW, I think one of the qualities of a good system admin would be the ability
to work with a variety of tools and languages and not focus on one particular
language. Though Perl (not a favorite of mine at all :) seems to be quite
popular for admin type work, and of course knowing some sort of shell
programming etc would come in handy.
