I have to disagree with this. For one, if this was true I think we'd see a greater
mix of M$ and non-M$ prods at companies. Instead there's the company standard 
and big $ IT contracts.

Also, many IT people are heavily invested in terms of time and money in learning
the MS way, getting certs, jobs, promotions. If you rose to Manager, Director, or
VP of IT on the back of the M$ horse are you really going to have any interest 
in Linux / FOSS?
