Actually, it depends on the environment ... I spent about 7years in a
University CS dept and "costs" for the MS stuff wasn't a factor, but MS
products were avoided like the plague when it came to production stuff ...
I had a good portion of productions servers (dhcp, named, mail, news,
proxy, etc) moved to FreeBSD (and PostgreSQL, where applicable) before I
left because it *was* better, not because of costs ...
