You make a number of interesting points... as for Linux getting a "toehold",

Compare inux to NT and Linux wins every time just on $$$ - and THAT's
unfortunately what many managers look at - Microsoft will destroy themselves
(assuming they don't try to bring out a M$ Linux - now THERE's a scarey
thought !!!) - they will price themselves out of the market....
