Realistically, no government, council or borough would consider
switching without support.  Their choice of system would therefore be
only those with pro support contracts [which includes Ubuntu/Canonical
who do provide this vital item]... plus the training costs.  This is
still a win over repeated MS contracts & licenses.
[and the "this isn't what we were taught in school" syndrome]

So who out there can convince them the two things they keep missing are
common senses and real budgetary skills.
