I have a certification as a BSEE. I didn't have to explain what
it means. It is a four year effort in a college to get a BSEE and I had
people coming to me wanting me to work for them in 1962.
The RHCE is good certification too. It takes time and you have to
do things to get it. It makes you smart in Linux.
