I think technically savvy people like TLUGgers are more likely to
evaluate the tradeoff and accept it, whereas the general public would
be more resistant to their computer being used by someone else. My
guess is that my grandfather would view it like Google (or whichever
company) wanting to drive his car for 10 minutes a day when he's not
using it.

Making the case to the general public would be a social engineering challenge.
