Does Linux Certification cut the mustard?
For those pursuing a Linux career, is Linux certification a must have or an indication that you lack the real world experience that employers demand?
In the ever fast-paced and dynamic context of information technology, IT professionals need to be on their toes, constantly staying abreast of changes in the technology platforms on which they work. Operating systems are refined and improved in newer versions of technology, mandating systems administrators to constantly be on a learning curve to keep up with the changes.

From a Linux point of view, certification is an emerging and changing concept.
