  1. I've recently started listening to your podcast and I do enjoy it. You've all but convinced me that *BSD is superior to Linux. However, why should I both learning more?
  2.  
  3. Some background: I'm relatively young and looking to break into the sys admin field. Linux and Windows have some certifications that I can throw on my resume to spice it up, while *BSD doesn't. If I do research and am able to talk to the senior sys admin during a job interview it's entirely possible that I can talk my way into a job with knowledge of *BSD. However, the likelihood of me being able to get past the HR guardians is low without fancy buzzwords like "LPI-1 and 2 Certified", "Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA)" or "Seucirty+". I found http://www.bsdcertification.org/ when doing some research, but it doesn't seem very mature, and there's really no demand for somebody with *BSD skills, as far as I can tell.

  5. So, why should I continue learning *BSD? It doesn't matter how superior a product is if everybody wants you to have knowledge on something else.
