Your every option seems to be a variant of "I don't like".

That is a one-sided query. Do you assume that everyone (of 7 billion humans on earth) who does not vote, disagrees with all those options?

And judging by the number of votes (0 so far), everyone else agress with me that the choices are uninspiring and not worth the effort of choosing.

On the topic, I am interested to see thoughts on which line of testing people like/trust/enjoy taking.

I just got through with one series that I did not enjoy taking the test, primarily because it felt like the test was not indicative of actual System Administrator job functions.

I've been told that people enjoyed going through the RHEL exams because it was CLI based and you had to perform tasks, instead of memorize formats of files or locations of this or that.

If one were to move forward to expert and professional level certs, would you recommend LPI, Linux Foundations, specific distribution tests, other?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Best,

JP

Absolutely not. Please provide your options too. Hope we all agree to have options to focus on networking / db / security / email / packaging / web / fs / HA in two hours.

imho all current "engineer" certifications touch upon networking / db / security / email / packaging / web / fs / HA in two hours , valid for 2-3 years. Each of these domains in itself is vast and ever-evolving , so passing score maybe kept at 60%-70% .

Options for ... I have no idea what those "RHCE", "LFCE", etc are. Never seen them.

Are they like a "driving license"? Lacking one does not prove that one cannot drive. Having one does not guarantee that you drive skillfully and safely.
