I know of no one (in the circle of about twenty Linux users whose hands I

Probably a lot of the users of VMware.
Most of the people currently using Linux were probably using it well before
such things were accessible. I know that applies to myself.
But you'd get more mileage out of Googling for such cases yourself, and
presenting them here.
