I've a friend who wanted to take a picture, place numbers over it and
create a clock face. The only software she knew about was Photoshop
Essentials. And I don't know how much time she'd spent on the project
with no success. But she was frustrated.
After getting details from her, I did the job for her in 15 minutes in
Inkscape, learning how to do it at the same time.
She had never bothered to learn what other computer tools were out
there, and what they were capable of.
I think you described the typical computer users. They only know a couple
applications and use them even if they are not good for the situation.
Most I have seen have never read any book on any of the software they use
or even have one as reference. And they are completely lost if they must
use the help system or online tools.
