There is one significant difference. The Linux kernel is essential to
the use of Linux.
Dream Weaver better called Pipe Dream Weaver has no essential part in
Web Development though I know it does some sexy things.
It does encourage the clueless into Web Development. As for myself I
am not a web developer but I do find that from time to time I get
called to debug some of the crap generated by a friend of mine who has
been using DW for years.
