All I can say, that if money is not a problem, then your admin's would
have a hard time getting convinced to switch to an opensource solution.
They'll want 'paid support' and a big company name standing behind it...
When money is a problem, the 'it's free' answer becomes more relevant.
In any case, regarding performance, stabilty, etc. well, it runs under
Unix... That should pretty much say it all..
