Microsoft In business school the first thing they teach you about CEOs is: it is the CEO’s job to increase the shareholder value of the company. Since taking the position Ballmer has decreased shareholder value, as reflected by stock price, by -56.63%. That. Is. Not. Good . . . Microsoft should be searching for a new CEO right now.

I'll just address one point that'll blow your mind: you can command better rates for contracts at Microsoft for their non-MS platform development, should you have that experience, compared to a typical MS technology.

Oh, and this will also blow your mind: when working with non-MS technology, they don't require you to use an MS OS to do your work in that non-MS technology. It may seem strange, but it's true!

I'd like to see a much better non-anecdotal statement that backs up your assertion about Linux/OSX jobs being paid less than .NET jobs. Ultimately, for the best pay, being able to bounce between multiple platforms often gets you that purple squirrel pay.
