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.

I am the most perfectly normal person that I know of. I dabble with different linux distributions, with the idea in mind of completely replacing Windows on my computer(s). So far, there a still a few improvements that need to be made to be able to do that. Actually, I could do it, but my wife needs certain specific Windows software, and she can't. One program that comes to mind is the voice software that came with her Sony digital voice recorder. I haven't been able to find a Linux equivalent - but then I haven't looked for awhile and I am far from being a Linux expert.
