Hi, I am a EMC SAN Administrator planning to do one UNIX OS Certification and learn a scripting language. Should I do RHCE or SCSA as far as OS Certs are concerned. I know that a certification does not indicate good skill sets, still I feel it will help me as I dont have much Sys Admin skills. After Oracle buying SUN, would SCSA still hold a value? 

As for scripting languages, not able to decide between Perl or Python. Some say Perl is dead and that Perl 6 will be a mess and things like that while some say Python isnt as good as Perl. Can someone suggest ?
