it's about both. if i roll out 20 debian workstations in a company
rather than 20 win2k boxes, i save a shitload of money.

put it this way: freedom and free beer... which one do you think is
the selling factor? yes, free beer. now do you have to pay for debian?
no! i know that one *can* pay for it, but one doesn't have to. that's
the reasoning.
