Which front end do you use for twinview? it's very simple in Mandriva (out of
the box even).
As for the printer, Windows users typically (almost always unless it has
changed) require download or just installation of drivers, which can be
complicated at times. Many printers and scanners work out of the box in Linux
(all those that I've ever used anyway).
