I have seen in the last 4 years has had Sun and AIX as the hot
skill sets recruiters are looking for...NT generally rates several
notches lower then unix. Why..because everybody wants to be a CNE
or MSCE or XYZ..or whatever. Meanwhile my unix skills keep me in
demand as I field (no joke) 2-10 calls a week from recruiters for my
*UNIX* skills...yes I have Microsoft...no they dont care..they
want unix...and boy are they willing to pay.
And I get paid to play with unix...what a country...
