InfoWorld: Gartner: Desktop Linux savings overstated

My spin: I think this is more of a political issue than anything else. If Linux or Windows is “better” or gives one more savings depends on a) how the implementation is being calculated b) who is doing the install c) how much training is needed d) what is already installed and other factors.
News Clip: Using a Linux OS (operating system) might save you money on your servers, but most enterprises shouldn’t expect to see the same cost saving if they switch their Microsoft Corp. Windows desktops over, a report from Gartner Inc. said Wednesday.
