I agree with Nathan. When there are good Open Source options, we should be
using them, regardless of licensing cost considerations. People who have
low skills will need to be trained, regardless of what OS is in use...and
people who have a lot of experience won't be confused by a modern Linux
system (Ubuntu or Fedora or Debian, etc.).
