Actually, I would take this as an argument [albeit minor] for convincing 
people to actually switch.  Many of the complaints about switching to 
linux revolve around "limited application availability".  The points 
here are
1) What MS provided was crap [an effectively non-functioning 
Print-Screen button]
2) 3rd Party software [possibly not Free [as in speech -or- beer]] need 
be installed to make the system "useful"
3) It works as expected *Right out of the box* in Linux, and is 
typically *mostly compatible*(1) with the way similar functions are 
performed in Windows Land.

The fact that we are talking about a rather insignificant button on a 
keyboard isn't the point - the general truth is [IMO] pervasive 
throughout the MS World.

(1)  Not to be confused with "Mostly Harmless"
