Was considering picking up a few tech certs in my free time, one of them being Linux+. I know that everyone loves to shit all over Comptia, but I've also heard that employers really people who understand Linux, and I wouldn't have to study a whole lot to get it. Was also working on my CCNA at one point, but got side tracked on that.
My question for you guys is what certifications should I look at regarding the fields of system administration and security analysis? I know the CCNA is a good one to have, but is the Linux+ cert worth much? I have another 2 years until I finish my CS degree so I have plenty of time to pick up certifications.
