This is one of the premiere linux distros. And yet, it doesn't have DVD support, plus the stupid default password limitation to 8 characters, wtf? And other issues. Let's be brutally honest, this falls short of what a Windows consumer demands. He looks at his XP, and thinks, wow, this is way better than this linux stuff... and guess what, he sort of has a point.
We linux supporters gain nothing by burying our heads in the sand and pretending all is ok and we're living in the year of linux conquering the desktop. If we don't demand that these PREMIERE TOP linux distros go head to head with the best MS can throw at them, well then we can't blame the broad public for thinking that linux on the desktop is inferior and not read for prime time
