I've done both, but more on the hobbyist side.

The market is definitely not decreasing, in my estimation, regardless
of MS. The field of compilers is much bigger than mainstream
languages like C/C++ and Java. Within the PC community consider SQL
parsers, layout langauges (i.e. resource files), and ActiveX
scripting. Compiler areas that are much bigger than PCs include
language X to language Y conversions, metrics utilities, and
And, of course, in the embedded programming world there are a whole
slew of microprocessors and microcontrollers that need to be targeted
by new and existing compilers as well as lots of more specialized
processors like DSPs.
