Cost isn't only about money. It's also about the time people have to
invest to pick the right choice. It's about incompatibilities because
different people pick different choices. At worst, people go away
because they're over-confused.
If you want to see people having fun in reducing complexity, watch
out for projects like Puppy Linux, Damn Small Linux, TinyBSD,
lighttpd, AbiWord, and many more. Yes, my (FreeBSD) web server has a
14 MebiByte disk footprint only and I had much fun getting rid of all
the other stuff.

This might be true. One reason more to slim down this
infrastructure and to cheer about those working on it. :-)
 I can't tell, as I never tried to talk to brick walls.
