From the esteemed Microsoft.com: "While the Linux software is practically free, implementation of it is far from free because a rollout will take up substantial developer and administrator
time due to the lack of complete programmer toolkits and consistent standards for things like object technologies. Meanwhile Small Business Server 2000
delivers full-featured functionality and better ease of use for both customers and technology providers right out of the box. Plus, all of the
applications delivered in Small Business Server are integrated to enable a unified setup that's efficient and predictable, as well as centralized
management capabilities. The familiar Windows user interface further contributes to the ease of installation and management of the server."
