BBC report - FOSS and improving business efficiency

A BBC report from Europe indicating that Open Source Software
could offer considerable savings to organisations with little effect on their business.
The report found that in "almost all" cases long-term costs could be reduced by switching from proprietary software produced by firms such as Microsoft.
However, it warned that a move to open source could increase short term costs.

Could that be another confirmation of the fact that education systems need to be actively teaching students with this software first so that businesses are in the box seat for taking advantage of this cost saving?
