I was very pleasantly surprised by CD/DVD burning in Ubuntu.  It was
easier by an order of magnitude than the tools in Windows for my most
common cases.  And doing more sophisticated stuff was a three minute
download-and-install away.  I think this was one of two things in which
Linux was easier than Windows.  Very pleasant.
