I can't forget the two principals of Comptia sitting in front of me at
the hearing on the Open Source Texas Bill (S.B. 1579) lobbying against
it. They are not friends of Open Source.
Given what they said, I believe they're astroturfers getting as much
intelligence on Linux useage as Microsoft wants them to collect.
Also, the popular certifications at Universities are Red Hat Academy and
Linux Professional Institute.
I recommend against cross posting this. Of course, you can walk out on a
plank blind-folded if you prefer.
Crossposting a somewhat relevant post about free software offerings at
Penn State. Check it out below.
Are there other pklaces doing this that aren't already submitted to

An interesting side note. In addition to the usual MicroS??t offerings,
Penn State (Mont Alto branch - continuing education program) is now
offering courses in Open Office and Linux.
The course description for Open Office has a favorable blurb, and the
program CD is included in the package.
The Linux offering is oriented toward CompTIA Linux+ certification.
