Hey Nik,

I don't dispute savings in the SME arena mate. But I'm more interested
in the processes by which large, corporate and public sector
organisations can save money.

I work in public sector IT, and I feel somewhat like I'm banging my
head against a brick wall trying to introduce OSS into my workplace.
I've had some small triumphs, but the noose of MS hangs tight around
the necks of most corporate IT directors unfortunately....

I've had some difficulty finding studies examining what happens when a
large scale organisation migrates to OSS and or Linux. If you have
anything like that knocking about, that'd be great. I decided a while
ago that the only way the powers that be will consider large scale OSS
implementation, is if they have the evidence of another same size
public sector organisation (or preferably a few!) doing it first!

It's a bit of a catch 22 situation...
