No other *nixers in my family, both parents have passed. However, after making fun of Apple and the Mac OSX for years, my sister and brother-in-law (Windows users) are now firmly entrenched in iPods, iPhones, and iPads.

Since my Mom's old XP desktop is EOL I'm considering throwing a super lightweight linux OS on there so she can easily do day to day things. Once the laptop's version of Windows reaches its end of life I will probably do something similar. She's not a complete dinosaur with computers as long as she can figure out the 1:1 relationship between old icons and buttons versus new ones in a distro of my choosing.
