Hi. I am just curious: Fedora 16 that I've installed does not use inittab anymore (it is still in there but has no power),it uses systemd. I just checked the CompTIA website and systemd is not included officially into the objectives list,BUT there is a very interesting phrase: "this is a partial list". Do you think they're gonna add it soon.let's say in 3-4 months?

    Linux+ can definitely be vague, so don't be surprised if you see on the exam in the future.

    Remember Fedora is more of the beta testing latest technology for RHEL. Fedora 12/13 would be the equivalent of RHEL 6. A lot of changes in Fedora 16 may not follow exam objectives to the Linux+ exam. systemd is the replacement of System V inittab. Which was changed in Fedora 15. System V is going back to UNIX days as being standard for.
    Remember Comptia is suppose to be Vendor neutral. System V has been the standard for open systems the longest time. I think later on down the road when Comptia updates the Linux+ exam you will eventually see systemd.
