Ten sticking points for new Ubuntu users

Just a couple of things I don't agree with:
Mounting - There is a tool in the repo's the NTFS Configuration Tool http://www.ntfs-3g.org. I think it would be a better idea to ask during install (when it asks if you want to import accounts may be a good time) if you have NTFS partitions that you want to auto mount and set the system up to do so. However it's not particularly difficult to find the windows partitions under the Places menu and click on them.

Documentation - You obviously didn't find the Help and Support item under the System menu.

Building from source - No way can I believe that the average windows user is ever going to want to try and build a package from source, let alone worry about the package manager being out of sync, so I don't think this would be a deal breaker for anyone intending to move over to Ubuntu.
