The linux users are rare, but for the last few months I've been running into a couple a week, definite trend in the area. I'm no IT and they know it, but it keeps things cool when I can help with basic issues....I ran into a lady the other week (IT director) who loves linux and Mac, she also said it's a trend with her colleagues in the area and that it wouldn't hurt to be more than a little familiar with the basics.
It's getting to a point where you need good Linux knowledge if you want to job, especially in servers. I've seen quiet a few jobs that require Linux experience and knowledge which never used to happen much at all.
