Demand for Linux professionals is rising annually

There is a growing awareness that open source operating systems provide a powerful advantage to their users.  Linux has emerged as the most popular open source operating system for companies and individuals.  Used for both workstations and servers, Linux is flexible, and can be configured specifically to suit the needs of its users.

Open source operating systems offer the advantage of being fully transparent. Users can audit every line of source code, build new functionality and use the operating system as a learning lab for programming.  This combined with the security advantages that Linux has over other operating systems such as Windows give users a significant leg up.
