I have seen GUI's for Linux that could make you swear it was a Windows OS, same goes for the Mac OS. The only real hindrance is usually found in that the software you would want to use with Linux not being available or very difficult to configure.
I personally insist on Linux servers for my web design. Last I worked with a Linux machine, hands on, was almost 4 years ago when I was consulting on a backoffice server. I personally use Windows systems for all my PC's and would only get a Mac if I was doing CGI rendering. And even then I would set it up to run Windows within the Mac OS for when I wasn't doing CGI.
Linux is hands down the best for webdesign. I know I'm bias but it's ok. The LAMP structure is the best that's out there....
I would be interested in knowing what the current market share is between Apache and IIS.
I've always had a hell of bad time with IIS back in the days when I was coding in ASP.
I'd like to experience a Ubuntu or some form of linux that looks exactly like Windows or Mac...I would probably love using it for entertainment purposes...
The way I use linux now is pure command line...
