I'd say its somebody who enjoys taking things apart, putting them back together, taking a look at the "guts" of things, building something of there own rather than purchasing the stores product. Some who likes to show off a little and say "look what I just did". Typically I think Linux people are not satisfied with what is availalbe on the commercial markets and they like to change, build and hack things to fit their needs, whether that be an operating system or a flash light.

Hi everyone. My name is Edward Janne and I'm an animation student at 
the Academy of Art University here in San Francisco. As a part of my 
curriculum I'm taking a cultural anthropology class and I elected to 
study the San Francisco Linux Users Group for my final paper. The 
theme of the paper is how being a Linux User informs identity through 
ways of speaking, categories of people and things, and common likes or 
dislikes. To gather this data I will post a series of questions to the 
mailing list. There are no wrong answers. My aim is to understand 
group identity from your point of view. Thank you all for your time.
