All of that depends on how much your time is worth, chris. If it is not worth so much, then you can do a lot of things yourself on the cheap, installing and using linux being one of them. If you have a requirement to fit into a long existing infrastructure that uses a lot of Windows compatible software and has gobs of data accumulated over the years in MS Office formats and you have a lot of time invested in using the Windows platforms and office automation products, you will gladly spend a few bucks to keep the ship on an even keel.

You just come off as an extremist, chris. Do you find that people tend to leave the room when you enter?
