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.

I've haven't had to install a driver with Windows unless I was swapping in a new graphics card.

Windows pretty much just grabs hold of the appropriate driver off the net now in seconds.

Yeah, but that's just a little bit difficult if your networking driver doesn't come with it. I'm not disagreeing that Windows will usually pull down the correct drivers (though I've seen it misidentify the correct driver on a few rare occasions) but sometimes installing wi-fi drivers is still necessary. It's kind of hard to grab a driver off the net if you can't get connected to it. ;)
