My wife has been using Linux on her Toshiba laptop for 4-5 years now. 
She'd been using Windows 2000 on a Sony Vaio SuperSlim Pro before that. 
She's a non-techie computer user - email, web browsing, writes fiction 
and non-fiction, occasionally listens to audio. She's been very happy to 
not worry about Windows worms and viruses, and she likes the multiple 
desktop capabilities - she's always changing desktop backgrounds and 
having multiple desktops just means she can have multiple backgrounds ...

She's not completely switched - she likes WordPerfect 9 - so we use 
Win4Lin to run an old copy of Windows98 under Linux. But she does 
everything else with native Linux apps.
