Which is why you upgrade your distribution now and then. Or have
a script setting a dynamic limit depending on available
memory & swap.

The small business should use the distribution provided limit.

There are tech support lines for linux too, if you _pay_ for a
distribution. You pay if you need it.

Sure. My impression is that most of the advanced stuff is in the
installation and initial configuration. There is very little
regular maintenance with linux. Less than your typical GUI os anyway.
Easy installation looses its charm when you have to do it twice or more.
