I've also heard other admins who separate linux machines from windows
machines, or apple machines, or printers onto separate LANs or VLANs.  I've
never heard one solid reason to care, except...

At a former job, some engineers regularly tested experimental ethernet
equipment, so we had a separate LAN for that.  Whenever some device started
spewing a flood of mac src all 0's and mac dest all 1's...  They only
crashed the isolated lab network.
