Re: Certification -- might I suggest LPI to _augment_ your Red Hat certification?

First off, let Red Hat _clarify_ their certification plans before moving on.  
All they have seemingly done is clarify their re-certification of existing 
RHCT/RHCEs at this point.

Secondly, you _can_ (or at least could previously) get RHEL AS as a low-cost 
(sub-$100?) "developer" subscription.  It's not guaranteed (let alone 
supported) as the full version, but it _does_ give you a "developer" version -- 
something you could run athome.

Third, you can always build from SRPMs as well.  There are various HOWTOs 
available.  Red Hat _does_ give you the tools to do it too.

Lastly, might I suggest LPI to _augment_ your Red Hat certification?  This is 
not a LPI v. Red Hat statement, just that it can't hurt to get both.  LPI is 
big in Japan and Germany, the US being #3 in LPI certifications, and there are 
only 69 LPIC-2 certified individuals in the US.

recycling the world's most renewable resource or refusal to use

in the further pursuit of, ironically, harming the environment.
