    This one is a little late, sorry.

    The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) announced that it will be updating its entry-level, vendor-neutral Linux+ credential, releasing the new exam by "late 2004."

    CompTIA characterises the upcoming exam as a "major" upgrade. Detailed objectives for the new exam can be found here.

    CompTIA Linux+ Certification Program Manager Yvonne Keith told CertCities.com that changes were based on feedback from subject matter experts, who recommended adding significant security material as well as a documentation section, and de-emphasizing hardware. "We also tried to focus the hardware better...toward Linux," she commented.
    Certifications: MOS Master 2003, CompTIA A+, MCSA:M, MCSE

      definatly a positive move, the L+ exam had become rather obsolete and pointless, this update will serve to put it back as a foremost neutral linux exam along with the LPI exams
      I am studying for the LPI exams at present along with my MCSE2003 and will add L+ to my agenda if i find the update to be significantly worthwhile :)
