Bugs & Viruses Tests at Microsoft's Linux lab show that counting the raw number of security updates required by the various operating system flavors is not as meaningful as examining the efficiency of the update process.

No.

You try to play a DVD and if it requires descrabling (and the distro respects American weirdness about the "decss" library and does not include it by default) then Linux will tell you that you need to install "libdvdcss".

Configuration -> Packaging -> Synaptic Software Manager
(enter the root password)
Click the "Search" button.
Type "libdvdcss" & hit enter. This finds the libdvdcss package in the repositories.
Select the libdvdcss package for installation.
Click "Apply".

Done.

Now you can play DVDs.
