MCSE wages compared to Linux admins are the result of supply and demand, mainly from the preponderance of MCSE training programs.

True but irrelevant. Go look up these figures: How many Linux admins do you need for a network of 500 workstations and 5 servers running Linux? How many MCSEs if the computers all ran Windows? Now, which is actually cheaper?

You shouldn't need more then 1 server admin for 5 servers nomather if it's linux of windows... Two if you want to make sure that your server admins can take a day off or something like that.

The clients you can handle with a service desk with 1 or 2 support techs. Again on both windows and linux.
