1: "Printing still has a long way to go"
I was and am impressed by how easy printing is with CUPS
2: "Locking down the average user isnt a bad thing"
The average user is locked out of certain tasks in Linux and that happened automatically without my intervention.
4: "The UAC was broken out of the box"
I was struggling to do the same thing in XP so I can't call it a bad thing.
5: "The Windows command line is horrible"
When I'm writing a business letter or corresponding via email I use the GUI, when I'm developing I use the CLI with VIM.
6: "I understand why Windows is so prone to attacks"
A Linux server is a juicier target than a Windows desktop so it should be more prone to an attack but it requires at least mediocre skills.
7: "Everything easy is not a good thing"
I learned that with a phone answering machine. It had one button but you had to hit that one button at the right time in the right way to get it to do the right thing.
8: "Windows and hardware sure do like each other"
HW has only been a problem with my GPS. SW support made using a video device difficult. All standard HW (printers, monitors, keyboards, mice, sound boards) went in without any extra effort.
