BSD and Darwin derivatives "During the Southern California Linux Exposition 5x's mini-conference on women in open source software, BSD Certification Group member Dru Lavigne put forth the idea that free/open source software provided an excellent opportunity to inexpensively change one's career path. Since this is an idea that has not been widely explored, Dru took some time to talk to me about it, as well as provide an update on the BSD system administrator certification program that is currently in development."

BSD is growing and is a serious alternative to the big guys like RH and Microsoft. Good luck!

I never really made this connection, but it is true. It is another example of the "snowball" effect it the 'puter world. You must have a certain number of users to afford to offer certifications, yet, certifications are a way of growing your user base. Interesting read.
