"In 1985, Jim Higgins joined the Novell Education department as
an instructor/course developer and, except for a three-year period
as an independent CNI, continued with Novell until 1998. In April
1999, he accepted an invitation to join the Caldera Systems team to
further develop their Education Department. I ``talked'' to him by
e-mail on December 23, 1999.
"Marjorie: Training seems to be a popular issue in the Linux
world today, and no one can doubt its importance. What motivated
Caldera to begin giving Linux training?"
"Jim: We have always focused on ``Linux for Business'' (now
eBusiness), and as we used an indirect distribution model, we had
channel partners who needed training on how to use Linux and make
money with Linux. We started in September 1998 and had Ford,
Boeing, MCI and others who ended up becoming direct end users as
well as partners. Business has been booming since."
