    Brand New Exposure


    Niel & Brad;

    What sort of a future developements can one expect for Linux since
    I'm in my late 40's why should I go for learning the Linux Kernel for my
    programming projects?

    Is the demand for linux going to be that strong??

    It's useful to remember that Linux and UNIX are quite closely related.
    Any experience with Linux would be very useful in a UNIX environment.
    Some companies and academic institutions use Linux as a cost-effective
    way to teach UNIX application programming, system administration and
    systems programming. It's much easier to give each student their own
    machine with no license fee than risk them breaking a shared server.

    Personally we find that we don't often need to know much about the
    way the Linux kernel operates, just enough to be able to build our
    own kernels and modules. BLP has a chapter on kernel device drivers
    which most folk will probably find is all they'll need to know when
    writing their own Linux applications.

    We recently saw a story on ZDNet that predicts an annual growth
    rate of 25% for Linux, so that'll be "yes" then
