In conclusion if I really wanted to run Microsoft Office I can use codewaever plugin on a more secure and robust OS susch as RedHat.

Umm... Lindows is based on Debian. Out of the box, Debian is FAR more secure than RedHat. As far as Robustness, Debian can be as lean or as featureful as you want it. I haven't had a RedHat install work in under 200M of disk space in a very long time.

Of course right now Lindows is not that stable. It's a beta project. I personally will not use it, but it's a viable alternative for newbies.
