One success story: My parents are using Fedora from the time of Core 5 (Now at 
Core 6). As I left my home for the job, they are using my old PIII, 128MB RAM 
system. They never used any computer before. So, it was easy to tell them 
where to click for what, my father used to have troubles with different 
passwords for root and other accounts, so I changed all passwords to same and 
as no internet not much threat I think. They mostly use that box for 
listening to music, storing/viewing photos or watching videos. Will put some 
photos later when I will be back at home.

One point I think is the most important is the system should work out of the 
box. We should not think of geeky stuffs from our parents.
