      While mostly an anti-BG article, it makes some very relevant points about
      Linux.

      "During his visit last month, Mr. Gates bamboozled uncritical reporters
      with jargon about GNU/Linux not being a threat to Windows. The total cost
      of ownership (TCO), he said, was higher for GNU/Linux than for Windows.
      TCO is the cost of software, training, maintenance and upgrades. Now, most
      independent surveys say that the TCO of GNU/Linux is a minimum of 25 to 30
      per cent lower than for Windows — quite the opposite of Mr. Gates'
      claim."
