I would say that most PC users wouldn't necessarily. I've worked in a few large organisations and had to help people with seemingly simple tasks that have totally counfounded them such as, Where did the window go? What's a task bar? Why does this keep popping up? I just saved this document and now I can't find it. How do I put this on the desktop? How do I make a shortcut? Plus there's all that evidence from the likes of Nielson etc. Us "superusers" tend to forget that a huge number of people just want to make Word documents, swap jokes, chat and play a few games and don't care about knowing anything deeper about there PC. Not that they're stupid, they just really don't care. [ April 28, 2003: Message edited by: Richard Hawkes ]
