Work likes to put people through it and while it's not quite as well
known as RHCE, for example, you'll be hard-pressed to find a
non-vendor specific certification that is more well known. The course
structure is a bit annoying (you /have/ to do LPI 1 before being able
to take LPI 2, for example), but other than that it's quite good.
You get to pick whether you want an "rpm-based or dpkg-based exam
(package manager related questions will almost exclusively come from
the one you pick, AIUI), so it does narrow things down to certain sets
of distributions at least; just something to be aware of.
