As we saw yesterday the much vaunted Unix skills premium over
Windows is pretty small – 15% or so in an overheated market and less
than that elsewhere.
Notice, however, that this information pertains only to larger
organizations: people who can pay their neighborhood pretend-a-geek $25
per hour to futz with their Windows machines are generally convinced
that’s a lot cheaper than paying a formal IT labor retailer $180 and up
for insurable skills.
