"Linux is just fine for technical users but I doubt very much a lot of non technical users would welcome it's arrival on their desktop/laptop unless it's skinned."

Have you ever seen a Mac? You know that OSX is basically UNIX, with a FreeBSD userland and bash shell, right? 'non-technical users' indeed.

With the right desktop and preloaded software, "gramma" will be up and going in 5 minutes or less...

I vote Mint/Cinnamon for a nice gentle transition for the average Windows user.
