David Foote, president and chief research officer at Connecticut-based research firm Foote Partners LLC, said that Linux experts are seeing bigger
salaries and more job openings.
"I think we started seeing the bump in Linux pay about a year ago," he said. "In 2002, we started to see movement, and then it started to build in
2003. I would make the case that Linux as a technology is in a much stronger position than it was 12 or 15 months ago."
