Which course should I take: System/Network Admin. or software development?1

I started my career as a System/Network Administrator. I have a good knowledge of Windows as well as Unix/Linux OS's. For the past 1 and 1/2 years I am into software development. Quite well conversant with J2EE and Project Management. Now I look ahead and see everybody is talking about Web services these days which might just be a hype. Frankly speaking, I am at the crossroads and not able to decide which course to take, System/Network Administration or software development, though I am looking for a stable and a rewarding job (in terms of monetary gains). Please Advise.
It depends on your interests. If programming turns you on, than that's the way you should go, same with administration. The money is about the same, but developers typically have better access to more advanced positions such as analyst and architect.
