How easy is it to use open source for:
1. A home user who is not a techie
Based on my experience, for a home user, open source is difficult to use, as it still requires some sort of technical tweaking, especially when working with various devices.
2. A techie home user
For techie home users, open source is the best partner in crime. It provides them a platform to develop applications for the home at a low cost, while fostering innovation.
