Absolutely true.

At the end of the day, every UNIX varient and every Linux distribution wants
to make you loyal and keep you locked-in to their system.

For instance, taking the case of configuring DNS settings on a new host.

If you learn the Solaris way, you can now do it on Solaris.

If you learn the AIX way, you can now do it in AIX.

If you learn the Redhat way, you can now do it in Redhat.

If you learn the SuSE way, you can now do it in SuSE.

If you learn the UNIX way (vi /etc/resolv.conf) you can do it in any of
these - and have a better understanding of the system you're looking after
in the process.
