That might make it a little more acceptable to your wife... 😉

OTOH, I've seen parts of LPI exams from 1-2 years ago, and I'm not really impressed (they are the sort of exams that honor parroting instead of knowledge & understanding).

You know my passion for Ubuntu and Debian-based systems, so this just seems like the next step in my life.

It won't surprise me if Ubuntu becomes just as major a player in the enterprise as RedHat. I am sure the RHCE exams are probably more up to date, but the LPI exams, from my research, are still heavily requested exams, and it looks like corporations look for their certs.

Nothing against RedHat and it's way of doing things, but Ubuntu is the direction that I'll be going, as well as the level 2 and 3 exams from LPI.

I studied for the LPIC-1 with this

I read it in a week and passed.

As far as the LPI-199 goes, didn't help me much. It doesn't reflect what is in the exam. I have my own sets of notes that I helped me pass the second time, but I can't hand them out to anyone, it might breach the NDA.

I understand the desire to have Ubuntu certifications, but the RHCE certs are much more valuable in the current market.
