|SUBJECT ||Subject: [hangout] change in policy
i'm thinking of a reply to redhat. they've really pissed me off.
this letter would be to jay novello, head of redhat global learing
services. if you've got a moment, please have a look at it (feel free to
change it or add to it) and let me know whether i can include the
comments on this subject from the mailing list.
redhat's change in policy of certification is infuriating; particularly
so in light of your prior stated policy which held that certifications
did NOT expire. (your instructor made a point of differentiating this
difference between redhat's policy and, for example, sun's, in my redhat
"fast-track" rhce class.)
equally irritating is the fact that redhat's education division always
seems to be trying to sell me something. but provides very little to
those of us rhce's who are actually out on the street everyday selling,
supporting, and advocating your product.
we all know that times are tough economically, but this attempt to gouge
the rhce's is cannibalistic. if you eat the porters, no one is going to
be around to carry the tents.
i've attached some comments from one of the more prominent nyc linux
advocacy groups and suggest that you review them. you're in danger of
being lumped in with microsoft as another company that can't be trusted.
