Let's see... I've done builds of RedHat, Centos, Fedora, openSUSE, and Ubuntu. All very interesting operating systems, all very difficult to build compare to a Windows machine.
What I mean by that is I could have taken any of those machines and installed Windows on it and everything would have worked. I cannot say that about Linux. Some times I could never get things to work 100% (like audio or video drivers) after days of struggling.
To me this clearly demonstrates the challenges that Microsoft has when introducing a new operating system.
