IF I have linux certification and work as Linux adminstrator, do I need to know Unix part of function??? Should I just go for both linux & Unix certification to make job more demandable? I see a lot of classes offered from community college which teach Unix & Linux combined in one class, do you think they going to teach everything in both field completely?? Finally is there a big difference between Unix & Linux??

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Having the linux cert is great….I don’t know if I would recommend getting a Unix cert…but I would recommend installing Solaris…or something and see how they differ.

They are fundamentally the same…if you know linux then you would be able to hop on most Unix systems and be able to what you needed to do. And there is still some demand for Unix servers but what I have seen is the migration to Linux in many cases.

    It is always great to know additional software related to main software, which you are certified / working. But first gather good knowledge on the main subject, as your case, Linux and you are working as a Linux administrator, so it is good to know Unix also. But not mandatory. As it inherits from Unix system and you can cope up it easily. For more info, it is here: http://www.unix.org/what_is_unix/the_brand.html.
