    Unless you're providing services to other machines,
    there's no reason to make a machine static. It just
    increases system administration and IP management
    cycles that aren't absolutely necessary.

    There's no performance difference. It's just a lot easier to use dynamic addressing, especially as the number of connected machines goes up.
    Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!

    It's possible to bind in DHCP a MAC address to a dedicated IP address. This way you can also have servers to use DHCP because they get the same IP all the time. In addition you also could use DNS registration with DHCP. This way a server, who gets different IPs every reboot registers it's DNS name via DHCP so that every client can transparently access the server with the identical DNS name but different IP addresses.
