Linux might not be as ubiquitous as Windows, but its steady growth in usage, jobs, salaries and opportunities is nothing to sneeze at.
According to the Linux Foundation, Linux related jobs have grown 80% over the past 5 years, while indeed.com lists the average salary for Linux Administrators at $86,000 in the US. The high demand for Linux professionals is fueled by the increase in Linux use across industries.
In the last decade the operating system market has drastically changed and more and more companies and organizations are choosing Linux over Windows. A recent W3Techs survey shows that 63.7% of web servers on the Internet are powered by Linux while Gartner research proves that Linux is gaining market share on mobile devices as well, surpassing Apple, BlackBerry and Windows operating systems.
Today government organizations such as the US Department of Defense, US Postal Service, US Federal Courts and others are all using Linux, while companies such as Google, IBM, Cisco, Novell, Amazon, Panasonic, Toyota, and many more are also powered by Linux.
