What I find mist glaring when one moves from a Linux / FreeBSD system to
a Windows system it's the virtual memory management, with the same
amount of RAM Windows swaps a *lot* more.

Regarding the usability, it's clear that they target different people,
as Windows if mainly used by non-IT people ..
