$2550 per desktop for Linux?
Homo Sapien Intelligentus
There has been a discussion on this for about a week in this thread: http://discuss.fogcreek.com/joelonsoftware/default.asp?cmd=show&ixPost=57265
In my experience, that 2k comes from tearing your hair out trying to compile various libraries that other libraries depend on in order so that you can get a library to work that your program depends on, then trying to work out whether all the compiler warnings are to be ignored or not =).
Yep and it costs more than $2k but you do it once, then you just dup.
Maybe it includes the actual desks.
Special Linux desks, with their own built in iceberg and pool to keep the penguins happy, maybe ;-)
