document re building a Moodle-like platform from scratch?

I'm recalling a document someone put together some years ago (4? 5? more?) re the cost & effort that would be involved in creating an in-house platform that served Moodle's functions, from scratch.  Need to share it with an unnamed highly-opinionated (being nice here in my terminology) CEO who insists on going that path.  Can anyone point me to the article?

thanks.

Well, "it would take approximately $10.8 billion to build the Fedora 9 distribution in today’s dollars, with today’s software development costs. Additionally, it would take$1.4 billion to develop the Linux kernel alone".

Divide by a safe number and watch the effect of the result on his opinion.
