Good point. You can create Enterprise infrastructure with a beige box 
and a linux cd.

I had to show my holiday fill in the network. I pointed at the Linux box 
and said... That is the internet gateway / firewall for this site, and 
it port forwards to the internal MSVPN server, and it's a reverse proxy 
for Outlook Web Access and it is an OpenVPN tunnel endpoint for our 
other site.
