I know everybody on HN hates Microsoft and perceive .NET as an enterprise (ie boring and/or subpar) but since I switched from primarily PHP to primarily .NET in 2007, I've worked with a number of great teams with both starups and large companies with strong engineers and on interesting projects. Furthermore, to address the actual question of the thread, the job market for .NET skills is huge. I get emails from recruiters multiple times a day. And if you are a good generalist with .NET skills plus knowledge of other skills like modern web tech or data technologies, even better.

I can +1 that. C#/.NET isn't very trendy, but it's my main language right now. I get at least one or two inquiries from recruiters a month with about 10-20 minutes spent on a Linkedin profile.
