It's funny you should mention this as I was just having a conversation with the owner of a company that employees 8 programming staff to maintain their application and 2 staff to maintain their small development infrastructure. He told me he can't afford to take the time to find the "right" one. So, he settles on standards (hardware/software) and a certain amount of mediocrity and goes from there.

Then again, sometimes the "right" one isn't easily recognized. :-)
