C'mon, it is not that hard, just point and click, right ?
Seriously, LPI is just weeding out those who know their way around & those
who fly on a wing and a prayer, this is what it is all about, not who knows
any form of package management etc. I also guess it is hard to ignore RH
and Debian, but that does not mean that people are not tested on well
I guess what I am getting at is how many people know or have known someone
who had a cert for some other OS but could never keep themselves (or office
staff/users) out of hot water ? LPI is up there with the *best* certs for
testing from my feedback.
