In my experience, many people actively get scared when you mention Linux (even 
though they may very well be using Firefox or even Thunderbird on their 
Windows boxes! Or Linux on their WRT54, for that matter ;-). In my view, you 
shouldn't advertise Linux, but make clear it's running on it when people 
actually *use* it. If they are scared about "the evil command line" they 
won't even dare trying it!
