I've recently established a goal for myself for my career path so to speak and figured why not go for Linux certifications through CompTIA(as well as a few other non-Linux ones).
Do I need a reason why? xD
At any rate, I heard such certifications are based on Redhat or distros like it and I have a question for the insightful, would it be better to completely change to a Redhat distro or would VirtualBox most likely be sufficient for a learning environment?
I only ask because I'm pretty ignorant to whether having an actual root vs a virtual one makes any difference.
Also is it possible to build a nice resume solely on certifications such as those or do I really need to sit on my ass in a college to get any recognition?
