Of course the customer will pay. SQL Server is not freeware. The real question is whether switching to it will save a substantial amount of money to the customer. I don't think that anybody with a grain of salt is expecting a handout. The clients may expect significant savings. If MS fulfills those expectations, then I know of a company in Redwood Shores, CA, that will be in deep trouble.
