    Hi all,

    I am back in school and taking a course in my Computer Forensic and Digitial Investigation Certification and one of the selections for the class project was to revamp an old laptop with Linux. I completed this with no issues and I really enjoy using Linux. Just wanted opinions on the CompTIA Linux+ certificate, is it worth the time and cost to get?



    Any certification, especially Linux+, shows any current or future employers that you are dedicated to not only learning new skills, but also keeping your current skills up to date.

    I know with my current job, acquiring the Linux+ cert will actually get me a $5 an hour pay raise. Each company is different and weighs different certs accordingly, i.e. getting Linux+ as a Windows Administrator might not be worth that much, but if you are a Linux server technician, it could be a sizable improvement.



    Thank you for the response. I am always trying to learn new skills and know those skills will be beneficial for me down the road. I was just curious about the certification. In one’s opinion, which direction would you choose, Windows Administrator or Linux Administrator? I have enjoyed using Linux, but I don’t know if there is a higher demand for Linux Administrator as there is Windows.
