Default Organizing a business around Windows Vs. Mac Vs. Linux

In the spirit of promoting workplace efficiency, my boss wanted me to investigate the possible use of other operating/computer systems for our office computers. This company only uses our PC's for the most basic needs... communication and information processing/storage.

Right now we run computers with XP Pro and Vista Home Premium... the latter needs to be upgraded to Business or Ultimate.

I told him to stick with Microsoft... I just don't see any advantage we could gain by using Linux, or switching over to Macs.

Is there anything I am missing here?

Linux is free... (most distributions)

Mac is favored as a graphic/audio editing o/s...

Vista or XP is the way to go... supported by businesses everywhere, its the corporate standard
