Re: How is this a Linux issue?

But I usually get shouted down by all the folks that previously commented smugly that all other OS's tend to have this very method as standard.

Why? It's not the perfect solution but, as you say, other OSs do it. Personally I wouldn't shout down a reasonable idea just because Microsoft don't currently do it. If they were to put this into a system, even the execrable Windows 10, it would be at least one reason to cheer.
