Clarify that I did not do statistical studies or anything similar, nor do I personally know someone from each group. In the short time that I have been a linuxer I have seen linuxers of all kinds.
Here is a list that I have made and you probably have some more detail to add or feel identified with a group in the classification.
1. New, let's see how this is.
Motivated by mere curiosity and probably driven by yourself, you are curious to try other other systems. Not necessarily because I hate others, Linux is used because Windows is hated, I really think that few do. He approaches with curiosity, without knowing much what it is like, to see if he likes it.
2. Converted by a friend.
If it is newly converted, what you will probably be looking for is that it looks good, that the applications you use are or more similar to what you used in Windows and what you have heard. He doesn't know much and whoever converted him takes care of any problems that may arise. If you are not very convinced, this story can end badly. And if it convinces you, it will continue.
3. I started recently, I like this and I will try to learn what I can and as soon as possible.
He's someone who recently tried it out, loved it, and is now eager to learn fast. Participate in forums actively, read, learn. Ultimately, you really want to learn and fast, you want to integrate into the Linux world.
4. It takes time but I like the ease of use and / or I don't have time and I use it to work.
It is someone who uses the computer for what they use it, probably any activity that has nothing to do with configuring the system. It takes time, so you know a lot but you prefer what works the first time to start doing something now. It is usually someone who knows well, you will see it with a simple distribution.
5. I like to experiment but I am not an expert.
The one with the motto "curiosity killed the cat" tattooed on his forehead? Now seriously, he is someone who, not knowing much, tries to try and improve himself. Sometimes they make real disasters, but at least they learn something along the way. They can be people who know a lot or not so much.
6. I like to experiment and I know what I do.
Is it the guru? Seriously, not necessarily, but he already knows a lot and he's an old Linux player, from several years ago.
I identify myself with a mixture of point 4 and 5. And you, with what point would you identify? Or would they add something?
