Not to gang up on Speed here, but I agree with you on the first point. As to the second piece, you are both right and wrong. Yes, there a two partition types called primary and extended. However, you are allowed to have up to four primary partitions in Linux, all of which are mountable.
You are correct in assuming that the concept of partitions is pretty global. However, many times they are called different things and may operate in vastly different ways on different filesystems and OS's
