Oh right. That's a pretty nice set up actually. Completely the opposite of what Id imagined. Sorry mate, I think I was being rather unfair of you earlier (though I still don't like the idea of a persistent browser, but the way you're managing your firewall and cookie rules is very cool.)

Forgot to mention decent HiDPI support. KDE already does it relatively well, and Unity, Gnome, and Cinnamon have recently improved support for it. Windows 8.1 is an absolute mess in this regard.
