KDE has, in my opinion, been the desktop that most closely matched the Windows look and feel. Here are some screenshots.

• $650 for the OLD server operating system •$140 for the license allowing 5 workstations to connect to it
• $280 for each copy of Windows, totaling$1400
• $230 for each copy of Office Home & Business, totaling 1380 •$499 for each copy of Visual Studio Pro, totaling 2495
That's over $6,000 just on Microsoft products. We still haven't picked an anti-virus robust enough to stand up to the constant hammering a webserver withstands. And the crap will STILL crash, lockup, develop unexplained bugs, and so forth. According to glassdoor.com, the average salary for a microsoft software development engineer is$90,000 a year. That's $1,730 a week. The same software with GNU/linux will cost you$0.00. However, THIS software won't need anti-virus, wont crash, wont lockup, wont develop strange bugs just from being turned on. It has the added benefit that you can communicate directly with the people that made it.
