This anectdote displays one flaw, one best demonstrated by just about every hardware and gaming website. If you believe what you read there, you'd think that everyone has a pair of $500 graphics cards in a PC with a $1000 overclocked, watercooled processor in a case filled with midgets at a rave.
Which is clearly ludicrous.
LUGs tend to represent the fanatical extremes just as those review sites do.
So I'll say this: Don't discount the mainstream. That's where the *vast* majority of users are. Where you used to have to go to a LUG to get Linux installed successfully, now it rarely takes more than a couple of mouse clicks. You don't need to be a fanatic now, as it by and large JustWorks(tm).
And that's all most people care about.
