OSNews, Generic OSes While traversing about the web this afternoon, I came across a rather funny subject title for a forum post. The person asked if any "normal" people use Linux, but went on to ask forgiveness for the lack of a better word than "normal." He wonders if anyone who isn't an open source, uber-geeky, stay-up-until-dawn-exploring-code fanatic actually uses Linux. Though the congregation here at OSNews is (obviously) comprised of very many of the aforementioned fanatics (in a sense; wear the title with pride), I also believe there to be many readers who are more or less "normal," for the lack of a better word, and plenty who may fall in between both spectrums of nerdiness.

My family is using GNU/Linux

I am the only non-normal one in my family, and I have coerced them into using Ubuntu.

My sibling is really frightened about the IT security threat that normal news covers so it was easy to tell them that other systems were less risk of being a target.

And I am sure that a lot of other people have similar stories
