Define 'non geek' :)

The Gnome apps I use are Galeon, Pan, Gnucash, the Gimp and very occasionally 
Gnumeric. The current incarnations of Pan and Galeon have been running on my 
desktop for at least three weeks. I think I've had one Galeon crash and two 
Pan crashes ever. GnuCash and Gnumeric have never crashed on me. I can't 
recall a full-blown Gimp crash, but I've had errors from it.

I don't use OO, don't even have it installed. I rarely need to write 
documents, and when I do I either use a text editor or LyX.

I don't use Nautilus or Evolution. Evolution is way too Outlook-like, and 
Nautilus is too slow.
