Um...in case you're not familiar with it, the line between desktop and 
server is severely blurred, especially when running a desktop.

The very fact you may have something like SSH running means you're 
administrating a server.

And it's not like if you're compromised the trojan/worm/hacker sees a 
magic "desktop" setting and gracefully bows out, respecting the fact 
that you don't consider your system a server.
