Well recently got talking with a MSCE about the total cost of ownership of
running something like FreeBSD. Any one have any comments on this or any thing
that would be useful to bring up?

My view on this is how could it not be cheaper since for the most part it just
requires some one that knows how to properly set it up. It can be setup to
automatically update it's self. No trouble some licsensing. No company hell bent
on feature creep. Easy access to source code. Easy administation. Easy
expansion. UNIX admins are no longer a problem to find.
