To begin, except at the frame level, it's probably better to call Ethernet or Token Ring networking technologies rather than protocols. Let me answer your question this way: given that 90-plus percent of networks worldwide use Ethernet (at least in place) and less than 5 percent of networks worldwide use Token Ring, which do you think will lead to more work opportunities? Why Ethernet, of course!
