These are extremely subjective statements.  For me, I would not be able
to set up Microsoft servers in less than 10 or maybe even 100 times the
time it costs me to set up similar Linux servers.

To refer to an old joke, that is in fact very true: "UNIX/Linux is very
user-friendly, it's just very selective about who its friends are" :-).
