I have a dual boot laptop (win 7 / Ubuntu). As an end-user there's really nothing I miss on the Ubuntu side.
However, as a developer I need to do development work for things I'm doing at work (on Windows boxes) so I need all the Microsoft tools really -- i know, i know Mono and all that.
Of course, as dev moves more toward web apps, mobile apps I can see Microsoft is slipping. I could do most all that dev in Linux.
 
My point is:
 
Can a developer make money on Linux? Yes? No? Maybe in certain pockets in the world, but mostly if I have windows dev skills I can go a lot more places on the globe and still be able to work.
 
Just a wondering out loud.
