Sounds lovely

But without stakeholder buy-in by the CIOs any penguin invasion will be off the books and scrapped if / when noticed.

I'm afraid that while the technically illiterate* continue to sign the cheques the IT systems will sleepwalk into comfort zone lock-in of Windows or Apple (if they're a media/marketing company).

*Understandably not everyone needs to know how thier systems work, that's why they hire us.

My personal experience, medium to long term savings doesn't matter so long as they can still open thier proprietary file formats on a familiarly branded machine. Turns out linux is a very tough sell or I'm not a very good salesman.
