The Benefits or Not of Certification (was LPIC certification)

Hi guys,
What do you think about these certifications?

In what context? To prove qualification or to get a new job or... ?

Please don't bump up posts (it's against the rules).

If anyone has anyone to say, they will say it.

Sometimes, silence speaks more than words.

Maybe be more specific - I can think a lot about them. For what kind of use would you do them ie. in which context do you think about them?

When looking for a new job it might be helpful if the company is looking for such certifications.

Generally you can work many years with Linux and get one of these questions and can't answer it since it might be too rare this circumstance occurs or never did at all for you.
One can also specifically train the questions & answers, so someone who hasn't a lot of Linux/Unix experience can still be able to pass the test.

If it is to gain knowledge just for yourself to feel more confident etc., I would rather pick some specific Linux topics myself and study them with a book and websites at hand.

Red Hat ones are, at the moment, too expansive.
Combined with CCNA those are the ones I want to have to better my CV.
Is a futile race?
