Linux I volunteer as tech support for a small organization. For years we relied on Ubuntu on our desktops, but the users didn't like it when Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface. This article tells about our search for a replacement and why we decided on Xfce running atop Linux Mint.

The very fact you even have to install drivers in Windows is still unnecessary tinkering. You don't need to do so with Linux - drivers are shipped with the ISOs.

And if they're not, you are completely screwed unless you know how to compile source code. Are you really trying to equate installing drivers in Windows to the unnecessary, sheer pain in the ass, process of getting drivers installed in Linux when they're not provided for you?
