I've been increasingly bored with Linux lately, so jumping over to commercial Linux support didn't seem very appealing at all. I wanted to branch out into a more diverse ecosystem with room for me to learn. As I'd done considerable work with Windows in support of Government work, I wasn't keen on heading there either...
