It would mean I could persuade my team to move it's intranet site off MS onto Linux and they don't need to learn a new language.
I can then produce the things in Perl that VBScript/ASP can't do or even move the SQL databases over too.
I'm not deliberately trying to be a Linux advocate here, I just want our system to be as good as it can be.
