"ZDNet is running a story on what a lot of us already know: Linux IS cheaper than Windows. This not because it is free. It is because Linux admins, although slightly more expensive, can handle a significantly larger number of systems than their Windows counterparts."

I can attest to that. The most horrible job (to me) I've had, after supermarket checkout clerk, was to administer two Windows NT servers. Because what is really going on is usually a proprietary mystery, and you'll waste a lot of time on hold with Microsoft, or pulling your hair out and rebooting the machine. And, on the other side, I've had the job of single-handedly administering around 150 Linux servers, and I was quite content with that.
