Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

Well, there were things I liked and disliked about ubuntu. I only ran the live disc but it was very slow to boot. Once up and running it was okay, but I was accounting for the fact it was a live disc too. Some of my older distros were poor to perform, and often discouraging (mostly looking at older Mandrake here) though recent releases have definitely become quicker. Strange considering all of the extra features. I know that in Mandrakes case this was to do with thier KDE compiling, leaving fvisibility to false.

Yes, I'll be the first to admit I do despise Ubuntu. I don't like their slick pseudo-corporate image, their broad proclamations about being the "world-peace" distro, the fact that they're stealing the thunder of the very distribution upon which they are based (Debian), the fact that everyone in the media seems to love it, or the fact that try as I might it just doesn't work the way I want Linux to work.
However I don't want to start another Ubuntu-smearing thread, so I'm sticking with my previous statement that some people are going to find different OSes that work for them and that may or may not work for me. My main complaint with Ubuntu is not that there's anything inherently wrong about it, just that it doesn't behave the way I want it to, and there's plenty of other distros out there that do, so I use those instead. Let's put the Ubuntu thing to bed guys. Some love it, some hate it, that's all.Registered Linux user #270181
