Abstract or Summary

This paper has a focus on the networking services that can be (and in some cases are being) taught using the Linux operating system. It first collates information from the literature regarding global industry trends of different server operating systems over the past few years, allowing the reader to see the position of the Linux server operating system in this market. The second part investigates the demand for Linux knowledge and skills in comparison to other technologies sought after in networking or telecommunication jobs by a quantitative analysis of networking job advertisements in New Zealand. Linux networking services are currently taught to varying degrees by New Zealand ITPs. In the last part of the paper the extent to which particular Linux networking services are taught is broken down into the subject areas they are taught in across different ITPs.
