"The London Stock Exchange has hired 81 open source software staff for the development of the delayed Linux-based system being implemented on its cash markets.

"The developers on the new system have C++ skills, the main environment in which the new Millennium Exchange trading platform will operate. Some development is also being conducted "externally", the LSE said, indicating staff at the platform's original base in Sri Lanka.

"The migration, which would have gone live this week, was brought to a halt on 3 November after what the LSE termed as "suspicious" circumstances in which its Turquoise dark pool trading venue – which already runs the system - went down for two hours."
