what is the most easy to learn: Linux administration or web development?
I am a 48 PC Technician and would like to switch into the Linux or Windows Administration field. But I was wondering if the web development would be also a good alternative? If yes some recommendations will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Web development is definitely easier, however, this means that there is plenty of competition. If you can train yourself to become a solid Linux admin, you will have less trouble finding jobs that pay well in the long run.

Web dev is much easier, but more web dev jobs are being outsourced to India. Thanks, George.

Linux admin! Linux is more mature today and corporations are moving to a linux platform more and more......Home Depot is 100% linux at their stores! Web development is ok, but as Open SOurce solutions come together, this job will be less and less important.
