These seem to be tales of:
 -  people who can't make Linux work. "Lack of Clue" problem.
 - SAP or Oracle being unstable on a particular distro...
 - server consolidation - whichever is chosen, fewer admins are always
 - plugging a tool/solution - like SMS for managing desktops

I won't go near Management Bias/Perceptions...

You'll note TCO missing.

And no stories from ISP's and Schools/Universities - places where they
tend to have a clue & mostly price really matters.
