well said Solo,

well actually im working on windows domain rite now, but in this part of the world(India), Windows domain is too saturated.. ter are too many MCSA/MCSE around than jobs. hence the payscale too is not tat competitive( i do agree there are ppl who earn handsome salaries even in Windows, but rare for a fresher here) This was one contributing factor for me to think on UNIX ,which stil remains in demand due to less ppl available in this lane , due to various reasons. Moreover im open minded to shift to any career lane tat promises me challenges n good payscale(at the end of the day u need to earn ur bread isnt!) As of my MCSA, it did help me earn my bread tis long and gave me my first foothold to the sys admin field!!

Thnx 8)

Live life lik ters no tomrw!!!

Since you've allready gone through MCSA, Then it's a pitty thinking of reverting to be a proffessional on Unix or any other OS, since you will probably forget all about MCSA while trying to do so. However, CCNA can be done in a small period of time and will help in both Windows and Unix. So it would be a nice idea to complete that.

Very good point and great advise there :)

It is a good idea to have a breadth of knowledge across the whole IT spectrum, albeit with specialisations in particular areas. This is because it is quite difficult to have the same depth of knowledge across all areas, and employers may not care that you know a bit about everything. They typically want you to be very good in at least a few areas.

I think the key thing is to shore up your knowledge in your areas of specialisation, whilst seeking to expand the breadth of your knowledge. This will give you an advantage especially if you're going for system architect/integration-type roles.
