When I did the first part of LPI 101 a couple of years ago, the debian
stuff was pretty new I think. A lot of the general quesions were still
very redhat centric though, asking idiotic questions about sendmail, and
a few other programs that redhat uses by default, but debian certainly
does not (and in my opinion most sane admins do not use either because
they like to stay sane). I wasn't particularly impressed by LPI's test.
Maybe it has gotten better since.
