My point is there is a trend with this. Just see:

http://jobs.github.com/

I don't see anyone looking for people who knows Windows in there.


Really?! I was not even aware that github had job advertisements.

Here in Europe I can guarantee you that there are plenty of Windows jobs around.

Most IT Enterprise projects are mostly Java or .Net, with C++ when maximum performance is required or there is the need to meet certain hardware constraints.
