What can you tell me that I don't already know?
If you ponder my advice and still feel stuck, try talking to working professionals on both sides of your divide and see which people you resonate with best, and who seem most sympathetic and positive to you: what you like about them will probably also spill over into what you like about the work involved with each of these two career tracks.
Remember, too, that most people change jobs every 5-7 years, if not more often in technology areas. If you pursue one path with dedication and focus and it doesn't work out, you can always try something else.
Best of luck to you in your career planning. Feel free to post again if I can help with other questions or concerns that might turn up along the way.
