I have to assume that what your friend meant was spyware-/removing/
program, and that you mis-read the UCSC quote.
There is no way that running spyware can make your computer run faster.
And to answer your question: no, Linux most certainly does not need spyware.
One thing that I thought was pretty cool, is that Windows Updates for XP
automatically checks for known spyware, and sends a fresh
spyware-remover every month. Pretty neat! Of course, on Linux, I don't
/need/ a spyware remover...
