Novell and Ximian One of the highlights of Joe Barr's trip to Salt lake City last month for BrainShare 2005 was the opportunity to interview Miguel de Icaza, a mercurial star of the free software movement who has been responsible for hugely successful projects and also founded his own company with Nat Friedman that was later acquired by Novell.

Linux Jobs
by Snake on Sat 2nd Apr 2005 02:24 UTC

The problem isnt the percentage, it sthe pay scale, most linux admins will get about 35-45k UK pounds this is. and normally this is 3rd line level most windows admins cover 1st and 2nd line. THe ones that do cover 3rd are normally multi skilled UNIX admins with Windows skills etc...

And the reason the jobs are rare or hard to get is becuase they dont want any person jumping into 3rd line. Secondly Linux migrations are taking place, and they prefer to train own internal people. There are a few jobs though.
