movement", have differing attitudes to certification, with Perl and 
PostgreSQL people, apparently not wanting certification, and MySQL 
providing (to a certain extent) certification. RH has proprietary 
certification, as does Novell.

Perhaps, LPI could engage in discussions (or attempt to engage in 
discussions) with other distribution bodies, such as Debian, etc, in 
order to institute other distribution-specific certifications, so that, 
for example, an LPI Certified Debian Professional certification, could 
be established, using the LPI Certified Ubuntu Professional 
certification, as a starting point.

I note that other institutions also provide Linux certifications 
(although I know little of the status of the certifications), such as 
the one at , which I assume 
to be distribution-neutral.

One last thought, regarding the proposed Ubuntu certification - in 
thinking about the MySQL certification, which, like some of the 
Microsoft certifications, is version-specific - would the Ubuntu 
certification, be limited to a particular Ubuntu version, and, be 
required to be redone (at least the exam 103), every six months, as a 
new version of Ubuntu is released every six months, to keep the 
certification current?
