    Red Hat Certified Engineer program turns 10. Certs matter

    There was a time when having an IT certification was the key to getting a job -- that time may be here again. Back in 1999, when many of my colleagues were out getting MCSE's and CNEs (remember those?), Red Hat launched its Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) program. Ten years later, the program is still kicking, with Red Hat now boasting that it has certified over 38,000 people -- that's a pretty big number. Then again, think of how far Linux has come in the last ten years -- think of how far Red Hat has come too. Ten years ago, most of us (Red Hat users) were running Red Hat Linux. That's a product that doesn't even exist today. We've got Fedora now (the modern equivalent of Red Hat Linux) and then there is Red Hat Enterprise Linux. (RHEL). In 1999, in my experience, Red Hat was mostly run at edge of network as a webserver, firewall or as file server.
