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.
