Computer company Novell Inc.'s purchase of Suse Linux AG in November last year, and its subsequent agreements with Hewlett-Packard Co. and International Business Machines Corp.—who are supplying the open-source operating system with their hardware, has increased demand for Linux training. Demand has been particularly strong in the public sector. Local government is under pressure to cut costs, and many councils are considering moving to an open-source environment.
