going to spend on an army of uber-geeks to support the desktops


First, you sound like MS apps & sw wouldn't require an army of support staff to operate. Second, which sounds better: paying more for one company, or paying less [or nothing] for another company and spend a bit more on support staff - which means more jobs and in the long run lower dependence on a single company. From a politics point of view the second sounds like a winner.
