    Nice combo but pricey.

    I'm in the process of it. I haven't taken the Linux exam yet but my understanding is it's the equivalent to LPIC-1 (which I have). I'm not not well motivated because of the lack of study material and the ever changing interface.

    MS claims 25% of their servers in Azure are Linux?

    I'm interested, only because at my newest job I'm the sole Linux guy in a Windows shop, and they're thinking about evaluating Azure. Just have to find time for it.
    Maybe 2017, when there's more study materials available.
    Goals for 2018:
    Certs: RHCSA, LFCS: Ubuntu, CNCF CKA, CNCF CKAD | AWS Certified DevOps Engineer, AWS Solutions Architect Pro, AWS Certified Security Specialist, GCP Professional Cloud Architect
    Learn: Terraform, Kubernetes, Prometheus & Golang | Improve: Docker, Python Programming
    To-do | In Progress | Completed

    I am interested, but it is about 8 spots down my list of priorities right now, and will probably never happen unless I encounter a job-focused change in direction.
    IT guy since 12/00

    Recent: 11/2019 - RHCSA (RHEL 7); 2/2019 - Updated VCP to 6.5 (just a few days before VMware discontinued the re-cert policy...)
    Working on: RHCE/Ansible
    Future: Probably continued Red Hat Immersion, Possibly VCAP Design, or maybe a completely different path. Depends on job demands...

    I'm planning on doing the MCSD: Azure Solutions Architect at some point, so doing the MCSA: Linux on Azure cert would only be one additional exam for me. . . might be worth considering.

    Let it never be said that I didn't do the very least I could do.
