1. multiple refresh rates, and resolutions, while stupid, is possible, Ctrl+Alt+(+/-) 2. binary to run on multiple distros... tar -xvzf binary.tar.gz -C / - you'll still have to meet dependancies, but you would have to do that with windows too (95/98/2000/Me/XP/Vista) 3. Device driver that doesn't require kernel patch... easy, a module 4. copy/pasting multiple data types... easy, each app just has to be able to read the data itself 5. konqueror sucks, don't use it, it's too much like ie... use nautilus/rox/bash 6. Desktop icons suck, but you can click and drag from the (start?) menu iirc 7. true, linux doesn't have the clipboard, but that can be a good thing (clip board gets congested, and confused sometimes) 8. you either don't know what you're talking about, or you refuse to accept it, or maybe you're just one of those Microsoft lover script-kiddies
