In many companies it's simply impossible to overcome the M$ bias and inertia, even in the face of hard comparison data. In most cases the decision-makers don't really know the first thing about technology, anyway.

I wish there was a way to slap some sense into people who don't listen
to technical arguments, or even business arguments, out of pure
ignorance and inertia.

Inertia isn't all bad. Those same decision-makers have managed to defer or avoid migrating to Vista... In any business, it comes down to cost. Some small companies can survive the costs associated with running an unscalable infrastructure. For others, limitations like this http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998536.aspx will severely hamper their productivity, and that racks up fast. When they run into a wall, they'll have no choice but to look for an alternate solution. If they never run into a wall, then there's no point in worrying about them.
