Given the opportunity to specialize between one or the other, what would you choose? I'd like to hear the differences between the two in terms of future growth, job prospects, and resistance to offshoring.

I know there is no much future for high level programming.
i think both the networking and database are pretty hot ,maybe networking has a bit higher pay,
but to have any future in any fields i think one needs at least for networking CCNA,CCNP,CCDA,CCDP,CCIE,MCSA and MCSE.
as for database MCDBA,OCP8i&9iDBA,OCM and maybe MySQL certification

This question is for Billy. I saw you had so many certifications, quite amazing to me. How do these certs help you in landing job(s), if at all?

I am currently doing Red Hat course and thinking of appearing for RHCE in next few months.Will it be useful?I see some opportunities in Linux but require C/C++ experience if you want to do programming stuff.Also in addition many ask for consistent good GPA from good school.
