It may be a paper credential. But, it looks really good on a resume. And, I don't see how someone could pass( at least the tests I took) the tests ...

    I don't know about the Linux certifications.

    This is a very respectable orginazition in the IT industry.

    I really don't have a need for it, though I'm pretty sure I could pass... Though I do want to be at least RHCT certified by the time I'm 18 when I start looking for a job. I would like to eventually get RHCE certified though

    Sweden seems to be more or less owned by Microsoft, so I guess I don't need it, yet. If I'd like to work outside Sweden by the time I'm 18, which I probably will, it might be a good thing to be certified... (God, I hate Sweden!!!)

    That was the reason I took the RHCT course(s), on my own costs btw. I'm looking for a new (Linux) job and hope (eventually) to achieve RHCE or perhaps even RHCA..

    I think one important plus point for certification will be that it will help employers know that there is a broad based of qualified Linux specialists out there. One problem Linux is having at the moment is the perception in the business community that there is "no support" - a broad base of properly certified people will help to put that one to rest.

    I'm certified, but that doesnt mean SHishkabobs! It means that I have enough of an understanding to pass the exam. I'm not trying to undermind certifications but certifications along with experience is what makes that cert more valuable. I bet there's tons of people here that aren't certified with way more experience than me.

    I also think that there is diffrent type of experience. Theres people that can hack linux to make it burn dvds and make games play or customize gnome or kde with cool border and stuff like that. WHile thats cool and its a great experience I personally think that a business needs a different person with different type of experience. For instance one must know how to update linux, patch it, monitor it, recover it and back it up either with 3rd party software or a simple batch file , theres tons more stuff like security. Now one may say well I know how to do that. But how about doing it on 1000 servers daily?

    I'm Linux + certified. I'm currently working on LPI gen, then LPI Advanced. Hopefully I'll land a job working with linux administering thousands of linux server.

    I have 6 six years experience using Linux but didn't use it outside a personal environment. So no need to be certified I guess. Maybe I will try to pass some LPI exams, shouldn't be a big problem I guess, though the higher levels will require some studying.
    I\'m so tired .....
