There are jobs in that there Linux thing…

That’s right there are jobs and plenty of them in Linux.  What was amazing to us was how large the demand was for Linux even in the middle of America.  While the Ohio Linux Fest is big and we have known personally how strong Linux support in Ohio it as awesome to see real data to back us up.  The data also surprised us by having Developer and Admin jobs in nearly a dead heat.  Normally it’s been more of a 70/30 split.  So whether you want to be a code monkey or a server wizard the jobs are there if you have the skills.  How can you get the skills?  The Linux Foundation, who sponsored the research, will recommend their classes and certifications.  We at LinuxInstall.net think that training is a great starting point but actually using Linux and being willing to be a grunt and change passwords is the best option.  No matter what path you choose we hope to see all of you reading this can join us.
