    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    1. Cost - Linux costs $0 (not counting administration costs).
    2. Open - Linux is open source. You know what you are getting.
    3. Cost - $0 client connection costs,
    4. Security - The behavior of Linux by design makes it more resilient to hacking.
    5. Performance - Most of the supercomputer systems in the world run Linux.
    6. Support - Microsoft support costs $$. Commercial Linux support is similar in cost, but there are a LOT more resources in the web-sphere for dealing with real Linux problems. Why? Because, Linux is open and Windows systems are a "by guess and by golly" scenario for the most part.

    I could go on, but I'm hitting my second double-shot of Irish Whiskey for the evening...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
