Hey Linux head, want a job?

Summary:The Linux Foundation has launched a jobs board.

The Linux Foundation has launched a jobs board.

(This particular Tux belongs to YoLinux.com, but he looks hungry so I invited him by.)

JobThread, a pay for performance job site through which the site is being run, says demand for Linux skills is up 80% in the last five years. Jobs can be posted either directly to Linux.com or through the JobThread network. The Linux.com site brags that it now has 11,000 registered members.

Given the 10% unemployment rate and the flack open source takes from proprietary programmers who say open source destroys jobs, the new job board will be more than welcome.

Keep those penguins working.
