I suppose there's one thing that Windows has going for it. When a Windows box goes down, it can be easily and quickly rebooted. When a Linux session crashes, a hard reboot isn't the best choice.

But at least I figured out how to switch to a side console (ctrl-alt-F6), log in under the terminal, find my GNOME session, kill it, log out, switch back to the graphical console (ctrl-alt-F7), log in, and everything's running again. Nice and fast when one knows what one is doing...

Exactly. And you can't do that with Windows.

This is because Linux is a true multiuser system. So a hard reboot would only be the absolute last resort.
