Yes, my Dad had a WebTV too, and now a Chromebook. He is far from tech savvy as well.
As far as the members at the forum, not to worry, we wouldn't want anyone to "leave" their home there. :) But they should always feel welcome here as well. Most members in the Chromebooks community are very welcoming and we all remember when we got our first Chromebook too. But of course I know, baby steps. :)
