I think SP2 is the straw that will break the camel's back.  I know
several of our clients are leaning toward using linux more and more.
The area I live in (Western NC) has been hit hard because of the economy
and I hear more and more of my customers complaining about the cost of
using Windows.  The best part is I'm the only linux guy in my company.
Maybe I can 'preach the gospel' and convert a few people here.
