As I answered the other post on this, it depends upon where you are. I
know plenty of Linux sysadmins who could not get jobs or had to take
jobs for $1500 a month HERE, while Windows sysadmins were making twice

It's starting to change, I recently saw a posting for THREE "top" Linux
C/C++ programers for over $100k a year, something even unheard of during
the peak of the "bubble". That's in the north, here in Jerusalem
salaries are half that or less.
