Usefulness of RHCE
Hey, I was looking at picking up the RHCE here in the next few months and was wondering how useful that would in the coming future. Any thoughts are appreciated.

i would think that any certification would be helpful job-wise. its another specialty you can put on an resume and im sure it wouldnt hurt to know. the redhat cert would prob be good bc its integrating into most big businesses now. i think there are general linux certs as well but i dont know how old/obsolete they may be now.

RHCE is still decent, because it is not watered down (yet).
MCSEs, A+ and all that mean nothing anymore. Everybody and their brother has one.
IF you are going to look at a Linux shop, it may be worth it.My computer is bigger than yours!

The question is for now, as job applications are going out as I speak....
I figured linux+ was roughly as worthwhile as Network+, as both are administered by Comptia. Seeing as how RHCE is still a 5.5 hour practical test, and is a bit more difficult than Linux+.
I am currently doing system administration on a production red hat server, and would like to expand in the field....therefore the thinking that an RHCE would certainly help, but $750 for an exam is quite an investment. So I was curious if anyone with an RHCE had any comments.
