Oh indeed, I'm not saying it doesn't happen. But for example, if you
look at their training schedule:


.... there's not a _huge_ amount of free software on there. I would bet
they do more training in Cisco than any of the free software stuff put
together. And I don't think, in that regard, they'll be much different
to any other org. out there. There is demand there, I just don't think
it's very big, particularly once you get out of Apache/PHP/MySQL, server
admin and vendor (SUSE/RedHat/LPI) training.

Yeah, I would tend to agree with that. I don't think there's many people
doing it, and those that are doing it are probably very specialised into
specific applications / languages / certs etc.
