And, on the off chance, one service on the server requires restarting, re-configuring, upgrading, etc...most likely the rest of the server won't be affected.Linux is also distributed under an open source license. Open source follows the following key philosophies:The freedom to run the program, for any purpose.The freedom to study how the program works, and change it to make it do what you wish.The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor.The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others.The above are crucial to understanding the community that comes together to create the Linux platform.

It's about freedom and freedom of choice.
