Has anyone signed up for, or taken the Microsoft Linux certification course?

For years I'e always gone the Red Hat Certified Network Engineer path.. but this year.. since SystemD kind of spoiled the party.. I'm seriously thinking about trying the Microsoft flavor.

Its a single MCP in the Azure series I think?

Mostly around using Linux et all non MS OS in Azure, so slightly different to the RHCE.
If you do it I'd be interested to hear you opinions on the course + exam.

I'm sure SystemD will be the best thing since VMX.. given a little time.. Rome wasn't built in a day. I'd just like to skip some of the construction trucks.

Eh.... if you've been with Unix for a long time (and I have been, since 1980), systemd is rather against the overall Unix philosophy.

Each program in Unix "should be" small and able to do "one thing" very very well. This is according to the original Unix developers. For example, one of the original developers wrote: "This is the Unix philosophy: Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together."

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_philosophy

Although "The Unix Programming Environment" is a better reference, it is not available online.

Different strokes. Different folks.

Are you talking about the MCSA: Linux on Azure certification?

You need a Microsoft Azure Certification (70-533) and the Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator cert.
