About a 'typical' (?)(UK) consumer- we asked a painter/decorator to 
give a quote for some house decorating today. Over coffee and initial 
business he heard of my interest in open source software. He said he 
had just bought a sony laptop which disappointed him because it had 
come with vista. A possibly typical new vista user, totally non 
technical, but very receptive to
1) finding out or discovering there is an alternative to vista
2) finding a friend (or family member) who will install a dual boot system
