Strangely enough this "tremendous overhead" is not very noticeable in normal
desktop use. I don't seem to see a major slowness compared to the same app
in windows. Most run about the same speed. Some slightly faster, some
No need to do so as there is no major performance hit. I don't know where
you get this from.
Linux IS a server and desktop OS already. Windows can do both as well. IMO
linux distros do both better, but that's an opinion.
Linux survives because some people like to own their PC's. They like low
cost, easy to get software that will run on a variety of hardware without a
lot of pesky license worries. They like stability and reliability. They
like to be malware free. linux covers all of these points a little better
than others, tho they may be stronger in one or two of these areas and
weaker in others.
A lot of mac users are using more and more *nix stuff. That's good. Apple
might also eat into MS share of the desktop. Also good. With apple and
linux around and growing the future looks brighter.
I don't actually live here.
