Aaah.. perhaps I've not communicated my "real world use cases" properly.

I listed them there as problems that non tech folks encounter, and as
an example of just what "non tech" discussions around Linux could

I myself am a sysadmin + developer with Thoughtworks Bangalore, and
enjoy porting applications to Solaris for fun :)

Incidentally, I'm now using OSX on my Macbook pro, in a bid to
understand the usability improvements that Apple has made to the world
of GUI interactions.
