To keep things short, I'll just say they raise a series of very valid points.

Linux can be customised how you please - Windows, you pay for the whole package, even if you don't use it all.

Windows based web pages??? I'm not sure I catch your drift there?

I assume you mean web pages that are hosted on a windows server?

IIS6 is more stable and has less bugs than Apache2 though...

Apache web server has little to do with Linux, it's open source yes, but it's available on all platforms, Windows, Linux, Unix.

Thats assuming the people concerned actually know how to customise it!!
Whilst I agree it could be usefull to have a customisable OS, far too often I hear the fact that you can view and modify the source being touted as a great thing for Linux, but it's mostly said by people who wouldn't even understand how to go about editing the source!!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not critisising you personally.
