How about:

Type x:  (from 6 to 26) First broke a keyboard at the age of 7, dedicated
	entirely to one computer type/platform, religious hatred of anything
	that does not conform to this platform, probably now programs in
	assembler or bare machine code: could be persuaded to move to Linux
	if the concept of a "hacker's tool" is hammered hard enough

Type x+1: (possibly already covered) I have to program for my job, my boss
	doesn't care what I use as long as I get the job done, I'm stuck
	with Win95 and it keeps crashing, compiling takes a week on my
	PProII-500 MHz workstation and I'd like to see something that
	lets me multi-task.

We should target young people; they will become old people in time.
