Another target group includes people who are still running XP, using an
older machine. 

Their PC is working fine, so why should they buy a new one? Why should
they upgrade from XP when it does what they want, but isn't supported
with upgrades?

That's why I switched in 2006, and I'm sure there are a lot of others
still in that situation in 2010. Ubuntu saved me last year after a
motherboard failure forced me to rely on a PC "Designed for Win95"!

There is lots of good stuff online, but for a beginner it's no
replacement for someone pointing at the screen and saying "This is how
to .... ".
