Web/Desktop/Mobile development.Which one would you choose to get rich?

Posted 08 April 2011 - 05:06 AM

I'm just asking this to see what others think. Which one would you choose if you wanted to become the next 'Bill Gates' in the world? Think about the competition, undeveloped ideas and the amount of profit you can make.

Serious question. :dozingoff:

Web.


The web is open to more people than those other things. Especially since the internet is accessible by pretty much all of those, too. So the audience is greater.



Also, if I could choose a second option, I'd pick other then say "Drug Dealer" because you can get some pretty good money off of stuffing cocaine into things and selling them on E-bay (ever wonder why that teddy bear costs $2000? Well now you know.)

I think mobile and other new and upcoming devices. People are shifting away from desktops in general because now, people can browse the web on the Android, iPad, Windows Phone, and others. The only reason I think the web answer is not it is that the infrastructure could simply not allow a totally radical change and still be based on http. The main protocols of the web would have to change for something totally unique.

Mobile devices have the most opportunity to have a radical change because they are still newer in development and everybody these days loves portability and fast access to information. My vote is for mobile and other.

I voted for others since there was no direct answer for many of the above and other answers missing. It's better not to be platform centric in many cases. It really depends on what you're doing.

What's the difference between "Desktop Development" and "Operating Systems/System development"? Both are developing for an Operating system?

Edit: Nvm, I think I get it.
