I guess what u mean is that if u develop OSS, how can you gaim money from it? (The same question was raised by someone in the FOSS conference as I recall). I think it's good for u to read this article.

Will if r a taking about linu

Will if r a taking about linux programming business here in egypt i think u should look for Web Developing (PHP, Perl, Java, and even C#, asp.net)

and there alot of resources about using .Net under linux, what u have to is to take a look on it and test it and for www.google.com/linux

Second about linux Business in egypt Programming: linux is not the main OS here in egypt so if u r going to program under linux u should to look to all ur stuff under linux and porting u r program to linux and i think this will waste ur time NOTE: if u r a web developer u will not need to port ur program

Networking: if u take a general view on network business here in egypt u will find that any one have MCSE should have a work "not testking MCSE" and linux/Unix will be a plus to ur CV, that a general view but there is alot of jops for linux only just keep looking and u will find
