Cool. Recently, I've been collecting degrees (B.A. Philosophy, B.S. Economics,
and B.S. (Business) Information Systems, but starting a certificate collection
sounds like a good idea, too. Comptia, various Linux, Cisco, and others are
interesting technologically. Mathematically, actuarial exams look good, too,
but first finishing a B.S. in Maths & Stats with some C.S. might be a good idea.

I am sure you're correct about this. Just as the OP's ability to meet goals is
a function of ability and effort within the environment provided by other
people, so is Ubuntu's success a function of its qualities and environment.

Definitely. Whether he is using Comptia materials or Michael Meyers' thick
training books with their associated media, I suspect they will run with
Ubuntu applications directly, or via wine, without problems.

Again, you're correct, but the OP needs to start somewhere. A+ is OK for that.
