Also, with much of the audio/desktop stuff still under development, I 
experienced much less of the linux/server stability...

Some months ago, the alsa driver would freeze my system whenever I tried 
to use the sequencer interface. More recently, the dri-driver for my 
radeon keeps doing the same. Then again my KDE-desktop is rendered 
unusable from time to time by some buggy apps not to mention all the 
beta audio-applications which aren't stable yet.

So right now, I think stability is not really an argument pro linux
