If you have ever wondered how you can convince your manage to favor free and open source software over proprietary ones, in this case gnu/linux over microsoft windows there is an article for you on TechRepublic.

1. TCO is bunk
2. Linux is not just for servers
3. Security is the name of the game
4. Support is everywhere
5. Applications are key
6. The kernel is just for you
7. Virtualization is virtually everything
8. Updating is simple and fast
9. Administration is world wide
10. Linux is constantly gaining traction

I think the article is somewhat biased but has his truth.
