I saw some very funny Windows admin'ing last week (not me). A simple
task takes ages under Windows, in this particular case
passing a file from one account to another, barring permissions. Actually,
I saw another example where a deletion that takes 2 seconds in Linux
took 3 minutes in Windows. :-)

Windows is good... for humour.
