---What you save in Windows licences, you'll have to pay in retraining staff---

Switch on computer

Call IT because nothing is on the screen.

Be informed that "computer" is that box the screen is standing on and you just turned the monitor on.

Turn on the computer.

Type name and password then press the Enter key.

Call IT again because you have forgotten your password for the fourth time this week (It's Tuesday)

Type in your password again.

Make the tea

and so on.

No retraining needed there. If an application is web based, it should look the same whatever the OS.
