Not entirely honest is it, shall we compare paid-for OS's to paid-for OS's? Like SLED at $50 a year, RHEL server is between $350 and $2500 (per-system annual basis.) and the client edition is between $180 and $3500 (for a bundle), again on per-system annual basis.

Vista is a desktop OS, so RHEL server edition does not matter. And even is you buy Red Hat's Enterprise Linux Desktop version it's still cheaper than vista. Solaris for desktop machines has an optional service contract for $300 bucks too, but thats not an OS license.

I would have included OpenVMS, HP-UX, and AIX if they had the OS price listed seperately from the hardware. The $10 OpenVMS hobbyist license does not count, as it is non-comercial.

Contracts with an educational institute rally doesn't count either, as your school is paying for a non-comercial site license.[/u]

Vista ultimate in .au $751

are the RHEL licenses for only a year, or is support for only a year, do you have to destroy all data on your computer if you don't wish to renew. I find that kinda unlikely
