    I am not certified......but am wondering what certification is all about. I've been using Linux exclusively now for a month and am getting around pretty good. (Took me a couple weeks to get my sound to work, but i did it :P ) And where can I get more info about becoming Linux Certified

    Check out this site for certifications

    http://comptia.org/certification/linux/default.aspx

    Thre price is a little high, but if you search Yahoo, you should be able to find some vouchers. So, you can get it cheaper.

    Example, my A+ Hardware and A+ Software were supposed to be $145/piece.
    I found vouchers on Yahoo, and I only paid $69/piece.

    No, I'm not certified and I don't think I'll take that test because I don't need it.

    Basically you don't need it to run a business but if you want to get hired by a company that works around Linux then they'll want you to be certified.

    man after checking out comptia's website they seem a little suspect... http://comptia.org/about/default.aspx ...I find it a little ridiculous that anyone would go for this sort of certification at all...why does one need a piece of paper telling him that he is able to do something? Paper credentials seem to end up doing the opposite of what they are initiated to perform, people can hide behind their credentials...the sociological Peter principle.

    A little over 10 years ago, Novell had to change their testing requirements because so many people were getting paper certifications and had absolutely no experience or knowledge of the actual system. Sure made life easier when they made the tests to where you HAD to have had hands on experience.
