While they may see that the server needs to run something else, all too 
often it's merely a different version of Windows. They're smart enough 
to know that Windows XP Home Edition is inappropriate for the mail 
server, but not educated enough to know that Windows itself is 
inappropriate. The sad fact is that those making technology decisions 
are no longer technologically savvy.
