I agree with everything you wrote, but I argue that your statements reinforce my assertion that the choice is there. Is it an easy choice, in many cases no - but that doesn't mena the choice isn't there, just that outside factors weigh heavily on any decision.
For certain, an employers preference of computing platform is not on the radar of most employees - personally I don't consider it important enough to either turn down a job offer or to leave a current job. I've worked in Mainframe (MVS), Unix (HP & AT&T), and Windows environments, and each had it's pros and cons (for me).
