You know fully well that the m-word is _still_ almost unspeakable in
some tech circles. "If you code it, they will come" and all that.
Heck, one could argue that LPI itself was born out of what Dan and I saw
as the need to market Linux outside of the realm of coders and into the
world of less sophisticated IT users (and arguably even
less-sophisticated-than-that HR staff). I would consistently hear from
the best programmers "I would never get certified and I would never work
for a company that insisted on certification". So if the quality of the
code is all that matters, why are you hanging around LPI? ;-)
PS: Ross, you didn't answer my question about the default desktop in
SLED. Is it a secret?
