Rather than argue for or against either solution, I will simply state what should be obvious.

Each OS has their place in the Enterprise.  If you are a Volume or Corporate client of Microsoft, then you will use their solutions since you paid for them and the support that goes with it.

Linux gives you a lot for little or no money, runs on older hardware, but really hasn't got any mainstream support (in comparison to MS).  I know there are Commercial offerings like RedHat or IBM (Caldera) that do have some form of support if bought, but the level of committment is less than stellar.

With MS, if you encounter an issue that requires a patch, then PSS will get you a QFE patch if necessary.  Try getting that with Linux.
