Just FYI thought some people might find this interesting:


And the summary from the website:

It is well accepted that the IT job market is a bright spot in otherwise
uneven economies. In the United States, the unemployment rate for tech
professionals is 3.8 percent, a vast improvement from 5.3 percent just 12
months ago and far better than the 8.3 percent national unemployment rate.1
With strong evidence of job creation tied to increased adoption and use of
Linux, Dice and The Linux Foundation teamed up to better understand the
global 2012 hiring outlook for Linux professionals.

 So just how big is the demand for Linux talent? And what does it tell us
about the career outlook for Linux developers, system administrators, and
other open source professionals? The findings of the joint survey tell a
conclusive story: Companies everywhere need trained Linux professionals,
and they need them now. The comprehensive survey includes responses from
more than 2,000 hiring managers at corporations, Small and Medium
Businesses (SMBs), government organizations, and staffing agencies from
across the globe. The combination of Dice’s network of tech-focused hiring
managers and The Linux Foundation’s access to Linux-specific employers has
surfaced an insightful report on Linux job trends.
