IBM say Microsoft is wrong about TCO of Linux

Microsoft have long been playing up the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) of installing and running Linux based systems, claiming that the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of Windows based systems is lower than Linux.

IBM has just reported that from their own analysis and study with 20 companies with more that 250 employees using Linux based systems that the TCO is indeed lower.

The sad thing is that I know people who bought into the Microsoft propaganda, which as it turns out, is nothing but just that.
