There are reports and studies, and there is reality …

I have noticed something recently. Others have noticed it as well.
It is hard to find talent in Linux and OSS technologies. Now before the crowds of gleeful non-OSS companies get on a marketing roll here, and quote me out of context (gee, like that’s never happened), it is worth asking the question “why”.

It’s not because they aren’t out there. No. There are lots.
It is because most of the ones I have spoken to to try to offload us, are themselves overloaded and busy.
