Demand for Linux professionals in Europe is on the rise, *with developers
and system administrators at the top of the list.* But hiring managers are
struggling to find the talent they need, according to European figures
released today from The 2014 Linux Jobs Report.

The survey, produced by The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organisation
dedicated to supporting the growth of Linux and collaborative development
and Dice Holdings, which provides career sites for technology professionals
in Europe with The IT Job Board and Dice in the U.S., is based on data from
both hiring managers and Linux professionals. * It found 87% of European
hiring managers have "hiring Linux talent" on their list of priorities for
2014 and almost half (48%) plan to increase their hires of Linux
professionals over the next six months, as compared to the previous six
months. Yet 93% are having difficulty finding professionals with the Linux
skills they require. Of those unable to fill open positions, 25% have
delayed projects as a result.*
