Ah, like putting IE too deep. If there is a slight performnce hit for the sake of stability and security, then I'll take security. After all, the hardware thees days is very fast, so I could afford a slight hit if talking about office and internet apps... Tho I don't see too many speed issues.
I haven't seen this as a good thing. Stability is more important to me.
Faster but less stable? I haven't noticed the speed too much, but do notice the stability issues in windows.
But used as both quite effectively apparently. Very good when optimized as a server and pretty much the same when optimized as a desktop.
Not that many, but what's wrong with variety. As in nature, a monculture is not a good thing and is more easily hit with one predator...
Download GPL distros are all OSS, but you can get them with closed source apps and drivers or download the same. No problem with that. I run Doom3 and UT2004 with a nvidia driver, as well as other closed source linux and windows apps on linux.
