Hm. http://www.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=01/08/10/1441239

All it takes the will.

And it takes being able to look at that software license budget for 100s 
or 1000s of seats of Windows and software and say "well, why *do* we 
spend all that money, when we also have to spend money on training and 
maintenance? The OSS are cheaper!"

But that takes guts.
