Re: Modified distro

"enterprise distributions require a subscription for support and updates."

many IT departments prefer this. And the overall cost is lower than a Micro-shaft solution. win-win.

the alternative would be a support contract with some consultants, or hiring your own expert. But at least you have that choice, to contract with Red Hat [let's say], or with a local Linux admin consulting group, or hire your own expert. Whichever you pick, it's highly likely to be a cost savings over Micro-shaft. [I posted the Ernie Ball link already, no need to re-post]
