Running your own servers is a reasonably good way to demonstrate
proficiency, and (aside from the cost of the server) is free.

If you're already proficient, you only need the exams, which are of the
order of £100 IIRC (and maybe a £30 book). 

The Ubuntu course is just the LPI one with an extra exam; I'd imagine
that most places that ascribe much importance to the Ubuntu course
ascribe much the same to just the LPI bit.

On an entirely unrelated note, your signature amused me. I've never seen
a company both explain how insecure email is and assume it's secure
in the same wall of signature.
