That comes at a price. I've heard some reports of CD-ROMs failing on Linux due to the HAL daemon polling it so often that it finally just dies. There are major debates in the Linux community about the supposed user-friendly behaviour of Gnome and KDE, and whether it's truly friendly. Personally, I'd be happy with a button to mount my devices, instead of automounting. Be careful whenever you say that it should work like Windows. Mike -- Michael P.
