That was actually precisely the reason I did the survey. :^)
It _is_ interesting to hear what "non-average-Joe-User" things people
do with Linux, and many people who visit the demo _are_ interested in
Linux as a Unix-style environment to do work-related stuff.

But yeah, most LUGOD members seem to (also) use Linux as their desktop
environment, and I was curious /what else/ people use Linux for.
(My own computer usage is, actually, pretty basic!)
