Is it just me, or do people who use AOL tend to know less about using their browsers and computers in general? I know several long-term AOL members. One is a lady in her 50s. She's a smart gal and business owner. But a few weeks ago I had to explain how to copy and paste to her. And she's been using computers for years. My older brother (AOL user) complained a few years ago about how his Win XP machine was slowing down. I asked him how often he defragged. His reply: "Defrag? What's that?" I know another AOL user who's had the same machine for years. She emailed me one day wondering how to find out what version of Windows she had. Maybe it's just coincidence but it seems odd that so many AOL users lack a lot of the general knowledge most other "non-IT" users have. I'm not being snarky, just curious if anyone else has noticed this.
