Linux TCO significantly lower than others 11121
Wow. That's a heck of a statement.
Funny that Microsoft has that whole MSCE program. Are you saying that it's not really valuable, it's just like a warm blankie for overly concerned IT managers?

Um, yeah you did. Let's review:
So, you're saying that "in-house staff" is "more expensive". Now, you can't mean that in-house staff working on Windows is both more expensive *and* gives Windows a "lower TCO". In context, if you're saying Linux has a higher TCO, then the "in-house staff" that is "more expensive" must refer to, as steve said, "Linux staff".
If this is not what you meant, please explain, in detail, what you are saying, if anything.
Bill, you're not explaining yourself at all. You stated, and I quote, "You buy cheap and you get cheap and it will eventually show."
If Windows is, in fact, the cheap solution, then why will it not 'eventually show'? I mean, you imply that if Linux is less expensive, it's a false economy; why if the situation is reversed, is Windows not the false economy? You can't just ignore the contradiction and pretend that it's not there. Well, you *can*, I guess, but then it's just kind of sad and amusing.
