I've got my sister running Linux (Red Hat 9).  All she really does is 
surf the web, check email, and chat.  Lately she's started using GNUCash 
for her checking account, and likes it.  She was tired of having to get 
me to come over and fix her Windoze box everytime she got a virus, or 
something crashed.  It's been a bit over a year now, and she can even 
install from RPM's (next I teach her how to compile *L*)
