umm... both my parents use ubuntu - My mother is a big-time fan of
puzzles/games in Linux and has done a clean installation of Ubuntu
alone, as I was not around to help her (and didnt want her to ask for
help on the sarcastic local Lug list).  My father was always
comfortable around Linux, has installed and trouble-shooted the
good/ugly plugins and finds Ubuntu Forums very useful.  I wonder which
way to swing now - Debian for my grandma?
