From the article.

"Presumably the replacement of 100 Window applications servers with 20 Blade servers is the area where you'll reap the most benefit in terms of cost and convenience?"

This point needs to be hammered home every time the MS TCO issue is brought up. Second MS has started to push "Server consolidation" as a major selling point for 2003 Server. The way I see it this is perfect. Let them spend a fortune on education the market to the need of consolidation, then offer a better Non-MS solution

PS TCO is not included in the word list of the otherwise excellent spellchecking feature. Nor is spellchecking for that matter ;-)
