I need a new car. I like the Cadillac but I could save a lot of money if I buy a Geo. Sorry, Linux is not the answer. We like all the features and options.

I suggest users look at the latest release of Lindows which comes bundled with Open Office.
This will save bucket loads of cash

I guess you could save some money up front using Linux unless, of course, you need to purchase support...

Being that I work in academia and the University has a Campus Agreement with MS, pricing is not a problem; I just paid $150 for W2K3 Standard.
