I tend to concentrate on server technologies so I can't address the entire
spectrum of Microsoft solutions. I think it can be taken for granted though
that on the server-side that there are viable alternatives. So sure, there
is a business opportunity. To take hold of those opportunities you should
be able to offer Linux as a solid and reliable solution on its own merits,
and not just as a "we aren't Microsoft" solution.
