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.
