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 currently mantain 5 Ubuntu computers for my family, my girlfriend's family, and two friends. That makes 8 normal or computer/ignorant users.

It takes very little work. after the initial configuration. Nobody has yet infected or messed any of the machines. Most ot their tasks they manage to do without calling for help.
