Unless you're running in full duplex (both crossover and switches
support this mode, so long as the NIC/switch at each end both support
it and are configured correctly). Then there's no collisions, and
you have a nice fast connection.
Your point about the factor affecting both crossover and switches
is quite correct regardless, however. You can really just think of a
switch as an N-way crossover cable connection; each port on the switch
only gets traffic bound for the machine on that port.
