Can you detail this. I use linux every day and don't notice any major
performance issues, even with 'bloated' KDE...
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.
Often the same kernel, but you can optimize as you like. Most is the same
for server or desktop tho.
Minorities get minimalized all the time. It's okay, we don't care. Unlike
MS, linux does not need a monopoly to survive. I've been using linux full
on for 10 years. I don't care about the numbers.
I don't actually live here.
