One thing that may come from doing certifications in such a way, that  
is, LPI plus "Specific" linux, is that it may start to diminish the  
quality of the LPI certification. What exactly is in all these  
specific distributions - SuSE, Ubuntu etc that is not covered in the  
LPI? It is usually specific tools such as configuration tools,  
network tools etc. These are not Linux as such, but relate more to  
certification of a particular application.
