gnome desktop personas - my very first draft

i started to draft a few characteristics of my "personas"; please tell
me what you think.  remember it's VERY conceptual, they don't even
have names yet  :)

i didn't know if we should picture only our core segments, or a more
general scenario, so i took the middle road... but this will have a
zillion iterations i guess, so feel free to suggest.
