Agreed . . . Only careful with the Web 2.0 battle cry. You are safe with Linux, but you are ceding a certain degree of control over your actual user-created content to a company when you use their web services. For example, we like to like Google right now, but I am not sure that I would want to store my documents in Google's Write or Spreadsheet. Who knows when Google might decide to change its mantra from "Do no evil" to "Join Microsoft in the nefarious control of the universe through the rampant exploitation of our customers."

I prefer to have exclusive control over my user-created content.
