Playing to their weaknesses

First - I think it's always useful to try and give constructive feedback, even if not every issue is necessarily going to be resolved.

That said, underlying your problem is that you are playing your operating systems to their weaknesses. Linux's Unix roots made it strongest as a server OS first, and it is only fairly recently becoming a fully viable Desktop environment. Windows started on the Desktop, and my option about it's server viability is a little biased.

That said, the company I work for went for the servers first, and may or may not do all the desktops eventually. What you're describing seems fundamentally backwards: I can't imagine anything being more headache prone then trying to set up an office with Windows servers and Linux desktops.
