One thing is clear: Although Microsoft Windows and Cisco certifications continue to be the biggest, the importance of Linux Get Linux or Windows Managed Hosting Services with Industry Leading Fanatical Support. certifications is on the rise.

Linux occupies prominent positions in CertCities "10 Hottest Certifications of 2006," for example. For the first time, the list was led by Linux, with the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) credential on top.

"If you're looking for yet another sign that Linux is becoming a real player, then you've got it," wrote CertCities' Becky Nagel. "Quite a feat -- especially when you consider that the vast majority of CertCities.com's readers are Windows professionals."

Full Story.

Of Course

Yes, since we all know only smart IT people have IT Certs. You would have thought the paper MCSE flood would have cured HR from believing that. My rule of thumb, if a client demands IT Certs only for a project, I quickly laugh my ass off and run (not walk) away (with my two Master degrees) from the job.

  • Mux Controller Subsystem Proposed For Linux 4.12
    A new subsystem has been proposed for staging in the Linux 4.12 kernel. Peter Rosin has requested Greg KH pull in the mux controller subsystem for the Linux 4.12 kernel. He explained of this new subsystem, "This adds a new mux controller subsystem with an interface for accessing mux controllers, along with two drivers providing the interface (gpio and adg792) and two consumers (iio and i2c).
