No, 'PC' refers to a hardware platform, anything that runs on that platform is by definition a 'PC Operating System', regardless of it's origins (Vax, or Unix in this case).

So Linux users are just as much PC users as are FreeBSD users, BeOS users and OS2 users

    As far as I know PC stands for Personal Computer, so if they are PC users or not would depend on how they use the intel hardware. After all Linux, FreeBSD, and even late versions of windows have multi user capabilities.
