MaxPC, this is actually an easy fix. Just add the keywords Cloud65.com and BIT40.com to your spam filter. Problem solved.

Ok aside from this being the first I've heard of this good news on Linux admin job prospects It's time for a rant. Please someone explain to me how is it that lxdsui or whatever the hell his name is can come on here and tell all of us how he made 50 bajilliongazillion dollars or whatever else those ??? spam posts say. somehow that passes the spam filter and I can't even link someone to a zdnet article without triggering it. Something is seriously flawed with that. Whoever is in charge of this website needs to seriously do something. Users getting flagged for pasting links and these obvious spammers can post all day long? wtf.

:P. Sometimes the planets seem to align. I've just started undertaking my Linux+ cert. I knew the demand for linux admins was on the rise.

I've been enjoying the financial benefit of being a linux consultant/admin for quit a number of years now. This job forecast doesn't surprise me at all. In my experience many SMB's are looking to get away from the expensive licensing fees of being a MS only shop. Many of my clients have reported increased productivity & profit since migrating over to linux & oss. The intial cost up front is somewhat high (re-training etc.) but the benifits & savings down the road are two-fold.

This shouldn't surprise anybody. With MS shooting themselves in the foot w/ win8, and the increasingly capable (and easy to use and learn) modern linux distros (not to mention the low low license cost), Corporate and industrial computing is likely to swing back to Linux - It's not something that you only run on a workstation anymore, and it can do most everything a Win or OS machine can...

Maybe a tablet based distro is next?

I hate to burst your bubble, but I think they mean Linux in server environments. Therefore you will need deep knowledge of command lines because a GUI can and will eat some precious CPU cycles and slow a server down. Not much, but somewhat noticeable when your server needs to be ultra responsive. Windows will still be on workstations.

Android is one well known tablet based distribution of Linux. But there's also an Ubuntu distribution if you're looking for something more traditional.
