Best network technology to learn?

In terms of training, which is better to learn, Ethernet or Token Ring protocol?
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!
