Although you might find a good amount fo people who fall in the category there are a certain percentage who have computers which are pretty standard or up to date. The benefit of Linux is you are able to run what you want and hence it is viable on a range of different computers.The fundamental strength of linux is it is for the, "Am Admi" category and many have old jaded computer box with scant RAM and harddisk space.. they are not the Marketing target for MS goons..But for Linux they are..
In other words, let people run what they want. Its providing them with the option to change that counts.
