I've been preaching that story here for years. They just moved me to a new
group and spent $650k on their Sun cluster...

		This is precisely what I've been proving to large IT
departments in the last
		year. They get better ROI and lower TCO with the SAME
resulting facilities
		using:
		NetBSD
		PC Hardware
		Java
		Apache
		JServ.

		And I have much better margins, support (you guys!) and,
even, better TCO
		(it's all easier to maintain).

		Now, I have to give more back!
