The new Linux+ is a great exam!

I just passed XK0-004 today (teaching it in a week and a half) and agree with the assessment. If you can pass this test, no doubt you know all the things you need to know to effectively administrate Linux systems in an environment. I'm happy to see these tests become reflective assessments of modern IT skills, and I felt like the new exam follows in the footsteps of the 1001 revamp, itself a big change.

I'm still on the fence concerning the simulations, at least one of them frustrated me extensively (and I've got 3+ years of working with Linux of various flavors).

Well done, CompTIA. Love the focus on practical assessment.
