I am not sure if having a certification itself brings recognition. I used to believe that, but reality proved otherwise.  I think we need a product to bring recognition. 

I think we need to advertise FreeBSD to embedded, point-of-sale (POS), or appliance systems manufactures and get a lot more users and business on our side first. 

Or you could start a company that uses FreeBSD on such systems and see if you can make it...

Out of curiosity, is there a market for a FreeBSD Developer cert?
