Hey Anne,

Sorry, I don't mean automatic mounting. I mean autostart.[1]

As I mentioned to dE, most major desktop environments support this, such
as Gnome 3, Gnome 2, Unity, Xfce, etc. It doesn't mean what is on the
mounted media is automatically executed. It just means the user will be
prompted if they'd like to run it automatically when mounted.
