I think we need to promote the fact that the skills needed to support
all this are out there,  just finding them is just perhaps a little
harder than say finding people with MS skills.   what is needed is for
the policy makers and employers to know the help is there and where /
how to find that help.

COst of that help is also important,   in terms of salaries if these are
too high it adds to the TOC and people go back to MS due to lack of
support or affordable support,  even though longer termhigher salaries
for Linux admins may negate costs of licenses and other expenses
associated with closed source software,

promoting and keeping groups such as Linux user groups active is perhaps
really important.
