CompTIA regularly reviews its certifications to make sure they meet the needs of the IT industry. Updates to Linux+ reflect changes in the core Linux technologies and processes used by systems administrators. Changes made from the LX0-101, 102 series to the LX0-103, 104 series include the addition of commands that support IT developments such as IPv6 (e.g., netcat and ping6) and new boot processes (e.g., systemd). Changes also reflect updates made that provide for greater security (e.g., rsyslog).

LX0-103 and LX0-104 (launches March 30, 2015)
