Strong demand drives higher salaries, perks for Linux-trained professionals

According to a joint report issued by and the Linux Foundation, companies are in the market for trained Linux professionals, and they're willing to pay.

With demand on the rise, companies are offering those with up-to-date training and open source expertise:
