Very good study.
But its a pitty that its only centered arround server side of the equation.
I belive the study was about some "more traditional" deployed systems, but it would have been very nice to include in the study some "advanced" configurations also deploying Linux on the desktop spectrum, specialy those arround LTSP on schools and other social institutions arround the world.
Many topological configurations would be possible with LTSP, http://www.ltsp.org/inthepress.php to the point that some *RECOMENDED TOPOLOGICAL CONFIGURATIONS* would be possible to advice, encompassing most intended IT payloads needs, and across the board from storage, database, server to thin and thick desktops.
That would settle the TCO arguing not only with studys, prone to rethoric and debacling, but with *EXAMPLES* that would hurt the most to the ones that are lying and trying to manipulate these kind of studys.
