In all cases the concepts are the same but the details are different.
Windows security uses a different philosophy than Linux/UNIX security. Windows security is implemented differently than Linux/UNIX security.
Device usage is similar at the application level. Burning CDs is very similar in both systems. You just have to find the right application to do the job. (Nero on Windows vs K3B on Linux, Windows Media Player on Windows vs mplayer on Linux, etc.)
Other applications are available on both Windows and Linux so they are very similar. (Open Office Dot Org, Inkscape, TrueCrypt, Firefox, etc.)
But the most important thing to remember is that Linux is NOT Windows! Linux is different than Windows in many details.
