silicon.com - Microsoft really is cheaper than Linux

silicon.com - Microsoft really is cheaper than Linux "Only Microsoft users on older versions of its desktop operating systems are likely to get any benefit from migrating to Linux, according to a new report by Gartner.
The report said the operating system and PC represent less than a third of the total cost of ownership and that migration should only be considered in a few situations. Michael Silver, VP and research director at Gartner, said in a statement that other costs such as labour, training and external services should be taken into account."

This report apparently wasn't sponsored by MS...
