No one can tell the future. But at the present, yes, MS Windows dominates where I am and in the indusrtry I work in. Linux is making few small nibbles but has hardly any precense.

No one get's fired for buying MS and that's usually the rallying cry of IT managers when you try to get them to use a different OS.

If you are starting up and have no clue what to do, just go with the flow and you will be fine.

It also pays to be platform agnostic and be a jack of all trades. Makes you more flexible to changing times.
