I don't know how to read that, so I'm going to read it in a positive

First off, LPI is a great international, vendor neutral organization. 
The LPIC program is proof positive that you _can_ build a vendor neutral
certification program that can reach the "expert" level.

But, secondly, I hope _no_one_ belittles Red Hat's certification
program.  Lab-based testing is still a very good way to gage competence
at a very high level.  The downsides are that it easily becomes
vendor-centric and expensive.
