Linux admins charge more than MCSEs


That's because owning an MCSE isn't worth anything. Linux admins tend to have actual skills.

MCSE wages compared to Linux admins are the result of supply and demand, mainly from the preponderance of MCSE training programs.

True but irrelevant. Go look up these figures: How many Linux admins do you need for a network of 500 workstations and 5 servers running Linux? How many MCSEs if the computers all ran Windows? Now, which is actually cheaper?
