You probably get these questions a lot. However, I looked around and
couldn't find anything so here goes...
I'm an AS/400 Senior P/A who is getting a little bored and wondering how
big the AS/400 market will be in 5-10 years. I'm thinking about not only
changing jobs, but also changing platforms.
What platform would you all recommend? I've asked my programmer friends
and have mostly heard "Windows NT" and "UNIX" from them. I'd prefer not
to work on NT due to personal issues with Microsoft (can't work on a
platform I don't truly believe in :) but I've heard that NT is stealing
marketshare away from UNIX. Obviously, we all want to develop code for a
growing industry, and none of us want to end up as maintenance programmers
in a niche market.
What do you guys think? I'd really appreciate any words of wisdom from
those of you working in this field.
