With the availability of software such as LibreOffice, Gimp, etc. maybe 
we should stop identifying specifically with Linux and focus more on 
free & open source software (WolvesFOSS ?). Yes, we know Linux is 
technically superior to certain bloated OSes, but does that have any 
meaning to the man on the street? They just want to access their emails 
(probably via webmail), Facebook, etc.

While we have always been friendly, some people may have been put off by 
Linux as it is often seen as too technical and requiring too much expertise.

Just my 2p.
