The vast majority of people use either SPV wallets or online wallets.
They will just follow the longest chain.

I’d like to point out that the only people that will have to upgrade are the 
people that run a Bitcoin Core node while they are not miners etc.
Those individuals are doing it wrong anyway.

Instead of badgering the SegWit-workgroup, I think a much higher rate of 
benefit can be reached by educating the people that run full nodes and 
explaining how they are not in actual fact helping the network.
The simple fact is that if they didn’t run those nodes, this whole 
discussion would not exist.
