I'll second that. It's the only one that has actually gotten anywhere with the non-techies.

I'm not really sure where you want to draw the line when discussing "Linux distros", but if we're including non-GNU OSs like Android then surely we have to include all embedded Linux OSs too. Thus I'd argue that TomTom was the first Linux distro to be adopted by non-techies. :p

I did actually include them in my 1st draft, but then took it out as general users tend not to play around with router software (and those that do, would only interact with a web interface anyway; which is little better than calling someone a Linux user because they use social networks which are Linux powered).
