This was kinda funny.

I checked out the Canonical Store (http://shop.canonical.com/index.php?cPath=21) for training and noticed the picture used for Online Ubuntu Certified Professional training uses the same people, but different positions, as the local technical training facility which focuses more on Microsoft training!

New Horizon's Screenshot: Check out the picture in the top banner. Notice they are the same 3 people, just in different positions and camera angle.

I just find it funny that both sites ended up using the same photo source even though they are two seperate locations.

That's what I thought when I saw both photos.

New Horizons isn't really a Microsoft-oriented site. It's just that there are far more Microsoft Certifications than there are Linux-based ones. And yes, they are now a Microsoft Gold Partner (I'm a student there).

But they pretty much offer nearly ANY computer-specific class, except some programming languages.
