It could be home or business, but at some point we got to take off
from the "mplayer-can-play-dvd+rw" and
"look-at-this-web-based-admin-tool" to some more cutting edge stuff
perhaps. The idea is not to discard any of the "home-use" stuff but to
actually show that Linux can do things at home beyond playing music
and video and editing graphics. If you just have 2 pcs or a laptop and
a pc at home (not all that unheard of these days) you can do an awful
lot more at home, which is not typically home-use but nevertheless a
lot of fun. You could even make a cluster of a few PCs if you've got
old x86 boxes with some RAM.
