"3. Performance
Linux is valued as a high performing operating system. Due to its modular nature - entire portions of the operating system can be easily added or removed, the operating system can be easily tuned for a specific purpose. Need a webserver? You can install a webserver only system, no gui, no nothing you don't really need.

"Need a mailserver? You can run a dedicated mailserver without a problem, just doing mail and nothing else.

"4. Stability
Linux is more stable than windows. Does your boss ever get frustrated with windows because of the instability? Tell him/her about Linux stability, and how it's almost always possible to recover if something "hangs" in Linux. In windows if something goes wrong the whole system freezes and you can only fix it by rebooting. This almost never happens in Linux, if something goes wrong a program may freeze and you can easily kill of that program."
