I'm sorry but I have to contradict you in that topic.
I found out that more 'standard users' than I thought are using
Smartcards or Tokens like Nitrokey or Yubikey (or anything similiar).
It is requested in security/gpg workshops more and more, and in the last
3 or 4 workshops I've held, each of the 15 participiants already had a
Smartcard or Token and wanted to know how to use them.

So I think this is not just a topic for 'professional or power users'
but also for so called standard users.

best regards from Austria
