"The site maintainer of http://linuxtraining.org today announced that the Linux Training Resources directory has grown from only a dozen listings in May 1999 to now over 105 training companies."

"The enormous growth we have seen since the spring is just another sign of the powerful influence of Linux," said Dan York, maintainer of the web site. "No longer can corporations use the excuse that they can't find training for Linux. The training is definitely out there, with more centers starting to offer classes all the time."

"The Linux Training Resources directory began in the spring of 1999 as an outgrowth of York's activities with the Linux Professional Institute (www.lpi.org), a Linux community project to develop professional certification for Linux. York explained, "Since LPI deals only with setting certification standards and not at all with education preparing people for certification, I had a lot of people asking where they could get Linux training. Eventually, I got tired of answering the question, so I did the geek thing - took out a domain name, found someone to host a site, and set it up."
