My grandma was getting confused with Windows, so I reformatted her
computer with GNU/Linux several years ago.  She doesn't know how to move
a window around the screen, and is baffled by the concept of
"minimizing", but nevertheless she can manage her photos, browse the
internet, backup her files to an external hard drive, etc.  Her laptop
from 2005 is running great with Kubuntu Feisty.  If you have no
experience at all, the learning curve for GNU/Linux is much less than
that of Windows...
