What’s your Linux dream job? The Linux Foundation recently asked our Twitter followers to share their ideal Linux careers. Many responded that they’re already living the dream, working as sysadmins and developers (or by simply getting to use Linux in their everyday tasks.) While others imagine fulfilling careers not yet within their grasp. Here are 10 of our favorite responses, along with a few resources for learning more about each dream Linux career path.
Is there a Linux career you’d like to learn more about? Tell us in the comments. Or use #mylinuxjob on Twitter to tell us your thoughts, ask questions, or share pictures related to your job or workspace.
