    The apparent 70% rule

    I'm currently applying for web-dev type jobs, and something odd has struck me. While around 70% of the world's web-servers are Apache based, around 70% of the web-dev jobs around this area are Microsoft .NET type jobs. Can anyone explain this?

    And annoyingly I know every little about .NET

    most good jobs will be for companies or organisations who have budgets to support there servers, so .net often win's when choices are made as the ones making the decisions are often the ones with no knowledge of what there buying so opt for a technology that has support to be on the safe side. That and the fact that there in a ficious cycle of there competitors use it so they should...
    and in a blink of an eye...
