Canonical and TraiCen Computer to deliver Ubuntu Certification

Canonical Ltd, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, today announced it has signed an agreement with TraiCen Computer Training & Consulting to deliver 'Ubuntu Certified Professional' (UCP) training in Germany. TraiCen will deliver official courses in Muenster from August 2007.

Two five day courses, Ubuntu Professional Courses 1 & 2, will assist System Administrators to pass the required LPI 101, LPI 102 and the Ubuntu 199 exams, and achieve the Ubuntu Certified Professional certification. These courses are the first in a series of classroom and e-learning courses scheduled for launch throughout 2007.

Securing a partnership with Traicen will enable us to reach a wide audience throughout Germany. With facilities in Muenster, Neumuenster and Munich, students will not need to travel far for high quality Ubuntu training,” commented Chris Kenyon, Business Development Director at Canonical.

Martin Hornung, CEO of TraiCen continued, " I know that it will be a profitable investment and it´s the beginning of a successful partnership. We have followed developments in the Ubuntu project since the beginning and are delighted that we can now be involved on the training delivery side.”

The first Ubuntu Professional course will open in Muenster in August and will run for five days.Source: Ubuntu (try saying THAT five times fast)

I wouldnt say you need to fix things, more like get them working for your system. Its satisfying when you get it setup the way you want though.

Last time i installed Ubuntu it worked pretty much out the box bar my wireless card. Again the same happened when i installed an old version on Mandrake at uni. Its not that bad, but yeah you need to put a bit of time into it, as with most new things, its new!

You cenrtainly dont need to fiddle for hours to get a basic apps working.

DMCE is correct, with Ubuntu.

Only for a majority of apps though.

Want something not pre-set up?

Good luck.

It goes both ways, though.

Program support in windows is starting to dwindle.

But, this is why I just use parallels, in os x.

The best of linux, best of windows, in a stable OS X base.


However, this is a HUGE step in the acceptance of Ubuntu.

If they keep up this momentum, they could very well become a viable desktop option for users.

Ubuntu has to worry about windows yes...

But if they aren't careful, OS X will come from behind and steal a good chunk of what Ubuntu has accomplished. ;)

[No, I will not tell people how to get this working, and yes it is the windows UT]

customization is *nix (ubuntu, etc) best suit. Most drivers they have work for what is out there. Games is a sore point for me though. IF they get game support fixed (or better) then I will definitely be willing to jump on.
