    Re: On becoming a certified Ubuntu professional

    Thank you mrjohn.

    In that case, I'll start Linux course (which will definitely give me basic + advanced stuff, plus it covers several distros) and then attend a RedHat course.

    Question Re: On becoming a certified Ubuntu professional

    What happened to the UCP anyway? I got mine a couple of years back through Prometric when they were already in the process of cancelling it. That is, at least through Prometric and instead offering their own certification courses. I believe they even did for a while, but I can't find anything on the interwebs about it since a year or two.

    Any news on what the heck happened?

    If you run Fedora, RH certification would come in handy as well as you'd be able to manage your own OS better if you run RHEL at work, and then Fedora aka. RH's testing grounds at home.

    For those interested in RH certifications, that's actually pretty good advise.

    What a coincidence, since a couple of days I decided to get more hands-on experience with RHEL. I grabbed Damian Tommasino's book and I'm currently working my way through the first half of the book (RHCSA stuff). He explains it pretty well (aside from the occasional misspells) and he's going through all the material step-by-step. It also helps to build the labs as described in the book and figure out yourself how to achieve all your objectives in his labs. Because that's kind of the point during the exams, to figure out all of the objectives you have to accomplish on your exam system.

    Today I actually decided to install Fedora 18 on my system as my primary OS. The main reason for that was to familiarize myself more with RHEL-like systems, even when I'm not going through the book and the labs.

    There's always CentOS.

    That's true, I use CentOS for the labs since I don't have access to RHEL.

    Ok, so I'll get CentOS installed to practise RHEL labs.
    Thank you all for the support.

    I don't know, but I've never heard of those. I'm planning on making a course to get prepared for LPIC 1 and LPIC 2

    Re: On becoming a certified Ubuntu professional

    I'm studying for the RHCE.
    I use Centos for that, many people don't recommend using Fedora for that
    now because it's not identical to RH, location og files etc..
    Centos is identical to RH, they only remove all the logos, trademarks.
    This behavior is by design.

    While Fedora is RH's testing grounds, so new features that are to go into RHEL/CentOS/Scientific/Oracle go into Fedora first.

    Is there an online Linux Professional test to take? I feel like taking it just so I can see how far I get.
