are we comparing  apples to apples?
raid drives?    integrated backup & recovery?    DB2 database?
integrated security (and excuse me if I say MS security is a joke-they can't
even secure their own site!)
ease of maint for service packs (cumulative ptfs easy vs NT svc packs)
reboot every month or so?
application integrity from release to release (talk to the VB people and the
future of their language)?
http server NEVER locks up? OS NEVER locks up?
talk with the rest of the world with industry standard (non-MS) protocols?
