  • Having suffered something similar recently myself, the two things that stand out in my mind are: First, the "where's my focus?" problem. When I close the topmost window on my mac, focus switches to the next window down. On Windows, it disappears into some weird netherworld, forcing me to reach for the mouse and click on the window that's already on top so I can type into it. Second, the horrible multitasking. Particularly with cygwin, I would be sitting there trying to use a shell, when all of a suddent "svchost.exe" would suck up 100% of CPU for several seconds, completely stopping all other processes. Come on, folks, this isn't 1960!
