A blue screen for anything of obviously wrong, I don't even like the
blue screen for a Linux install.

We learn traffic rules for the common good because a car is a
potentially deadly instrument. This is a computer that runs Netscape and
WordPerfect. I shouldn't be able to kill anyone by ejecting my CD at the
wrong time.
Traffic rules are more like a protocol between computers, the operation
of a car is much less complex than the traffic rules.

> Before I open the CDROM I have to learn to umount them 
Why do I have to learn umount?  Why can't I just drag it somewhere, say
"Eject CD" to my computer or press the eject button.  It's our
responsibility as developers to hide things like umount and autofs from
end-users.  I can always pull a console up if I want to type commands,
Bill says pointing and clicking is more fun.

Nothing Less.  ;-)
