I thought of learning SQL Server to improve my marketability and also upgrading to 10g to keep up with new features. Is what I am doing worth the time?
As for career choice, if you truly want to stay marketable as a DBA, you should not wait too long to get back to it. If your situation warrants it, SQL Server DBA is a better path for you to take than System Admin, as a lot of DBA jobs out there are actually looking for both Oracle and SQL Server abilities.
Hope this helps.
