Java in demand in UK, Unix also wanted
Author: JT Smith
From a story at The Register: "Java appears to be the most sought after IT skill in the UK. The SSP/Computer Weekly Q2 survey of appointments data and trends, based on what employers were seeking in trade press and national newspaper ads, showed that C++ was still top. However, it was down 36 percent compared with the year-earlier quarter while second-place Java was up 70 percent, so Java has probably now passed C++. You might well have thought that Unix was in decline as well, and Windows rising - but that's not what the survey shows. Unix is in fourth place."
