Title: MS Certs

Anyone...

I am a UNIX sysadmin with 3 yers of experience thinking of crossing over to the MS side of the fence. I would like to pursue a cert track but am unsure of where I should begin...I am not fond of hardware or networking...

OK...seriously, though...

UNIX has become so balkanized lately, and linux is so embryonic...besides, all the new jobs around here (Wash, D.C.) are mostly MS related...I would love to go MSCD, but I only know shell scripting....any thoughts?

Go for it mate, can you get any work experience within a Microsoft environment? I am fortunate enough to be in a position that if I wanted to (and I frequently do) that I could work with UNIX, Oracle (haven't tried that one yet), developers, networks and so on....

...give it a go first and then shoot for the MS certs. My aim (I don't know if i'll get it yet) is to get MCDBA, MCSD, CNE 5 & 6, CCNA, CCDA, CCNP, CCIP as well as Solaris Systems Admin....I can but dream can't I?
