I gain nothing by learning linux atm and I don't have time to learn it either :/
I do gain something by sticking with M$ at this time though, being MCSE doesn't have much to do with it. Having to offer support to M$ products @ work does however.
I don't like the whole "tinkering" attitude of linux to get things running, sure it might be fun to have control over every piece of the OS and control/compile to your likings. But for someone who does not have the time to read up on all that, it is a pain in the ***
linux is good for a webserver or dedicated application server. Everything else.. not enough official support yet.

If you have someone setting it up, linux makes a GREAT office OS, using a local server and remote workstations.
But it's still lacking for users without time to spare.
It's a here and now world, not a here, then read some there, and again something WAAAY back there, and then it works (maybe) kinda world.
I love the apt program for debian. I found the installation very easy. but it's not windows. Trying to install a linux without an extra PC for googling is hopeless.
I know more people who cast of M$ in favor of unix. Good for them, I'll just have to play dungeon siege with someone else...

You can google while installing Gentoo fyi, if you don't mind a text based browser. ; )

Yea, that's if you know how to a) start it up, b) work with it.
It may be just as easy to teach a n00b linux (being preinstalled with a nice GUI) as it is to teach him windows.
But someone used to windows is totally lost in linux.
