    Hi Guys,

    I've just finished setting up a dual boot with Vista Ultimate and Ubuntu, both 64 bit and have to say it worked like a charm! I'm seriously impressed with Ubuntu!

    My only problem now is having zero skills with Linux! But I'll learn. I'm considering learning and sitting CompTIA's Linux+ to give me a bit more confidence with Linux. If anyone has done Linux+ what do you reckon?

    Cheers
    Jim

    While I haven't done the Linux+ yet, I do believe that it's one of the useful entry level Linux certs out there. Another option would be the LPIC-1.

    Cheers Ken, that also looks like a good route. I just want to learn some Linux skills but I find when I invest in an exam, it forces me to learn all the material. If I just buy a book I'd probably read half of it and not really progress. Much appreciated, Jim

    Thats exactly the same as my thinking around Linux. Skills are zero, find it interesting, but still need some reason to learn it. An exam is one way i can think of to acheive this.

    Let us know how you get on!

    Will do Dave, just gives you that incentive once you've paid for your exam doesn't it. I really like the look of Linux and as I'm wanting to branch out into IT security its pretty much a necessity. Jimbo

    Sure is! That is the other driver for me. I work in Information Security now and one thing that we are lacking are Linux skills. Funny enough we were talking about that just the other day. Its another thing on my (very lengthy) to do list!
