No, many users use more than one computer, and it's important to know
_which_ mustic player. Imagine a support call:
Music Player doesn't work!
Which music player?
You know, Music Player?
atm I'm trying to get Wife to try out my old laptop which should be
entirely sufficient for her needs, in place of the bulky, older Pentium
III. Her major lament is, "Why is it different?" The laptop is running
FC3, the P III Warty.
Probably, email clients illustrate the point better than music players.
I use mostly Pine, Mozilla Mail and Thunderbird, sometimes Kmail and
rarly but not never Mutt and Evolution. On OS X it's Mail and Thunderbird.
They are very different critters, and a user coming from OS X t Linux
would be in for a very rude shock were any of the of the common Linux
email clients labelled "Mail."
