    What do we have to learn or what sort of skill sets do we need in order not
    to limit ourself to small-scale desktop software. Learning a couple Microsoft
    tools already taken most of our time.
    Please advise. Thank you

    Become skilled in research and techniques in applying theories/best
    practices to a problem and you will operate outside of vendors, technologies
    and circumstances. Acquiring the mindset of both an engineer and a designer
    could carry you a long ways. Being a bit of a politician can help as well.

    DavidI,

    I cannot read Simon's mind, but I believe he was telling Thomas that if his
    expertise is with legacy Microsoft tools and programming languages -- he
    might find the opportunites available to him in the health or accounting
    industry few and far between.

    While Microsoft has 95% of the desktop market, the same can't be said for
    the enterprise market.

    If you don't want to limit yourself to the desktop and wish to stay with
    Microsoft then maybe it is time for you to start learning something about
    the .NET framework?
