Of course, when in doubt, there's the tried and true method, a flipping a coin, and then committing yourself 110% to the J2EE vendor religious war, forever scorning those who chosse differently then you. Head blood, tails cript. (Those the names of the major J2EE providers, right? :-p )

I have seen reports that Websphere has a somewhat higher market share. The Websphere evaluation will not run on Windows XP, which is why I went with Weblogic...but I have played a bit with Websphere - it is safe to say that if you get to know one very well, as Mark pointed out, it would only take a fraction of the time to learn the other...
I got Websphere running fine on XP, and yes, Websphere does have larger marketshare in all middleware: portals, app server and integration (according to this quarter's Gartner results). I'd say Websphere is a safe bet.

Dropped you a private message, but just in case you don't check them:
On this good news, I downloaded and installed Websphere 5. But now it cannot start (fails to initialize). Were there any hoops you had to jump through to get it working? I have searched Google for a solution with no luck...
