It's a poor market at the moment.  Being in the business already I find
that most of my Linux work is with existing customers looking for a way
to trial a solution without having to by M$ licenses.  I still end up
spending most of my time fixing windows problems.

Not sure.  Knowing what I know now after 2+ years trying it, I would say
the market is very limited and already dominated by those who are
providing solutions without discrimination based on OS.
