The LPIC 1,2 and 3 certifications are addressing almost totally the server
side of Linux. With Linux growing more and more and expanding into the
desktop market, I believe that we are in need of an additional certification
to cover the Linux desktop.
Candidates of that certification would be IT staff that needs to provide
assistance to users who are using Linux desktops.
Following LPI's philosophy, it should be vendor-neutral.
It should cover desktop environments KDE and Gnome, navigating to the
filesystem with file managers nautilus and Konqueror, configuring a printer,
mounting a share, configuring MUAs like KMAIL and Evolution, an overview of
the office suites of openoffice and Koffice, integration with openLDAP or
Active Directory and finally localization issues.
What do you think?
