Sure. Check out SANS.org, salary.com, or anything else that lets you
compare the annual salary for FreeBSD admins versus M$ admins. Then add
the license costs of the M$ products in question, adjust by a fudge
factor representing the difference in relative productivity, management
whims, and all of the other unmeasureable factors unique to your situation.
If you tell us what you're doing, how many users, and so forth, a bunch
of people here can probably reel off rough estimates that will be in the
right ballpark, anyway.
