Thanks for your note. You are absolutely correct.

We are just in the planning stages of the marketing philosophy, so these 
discussions are important feedback for the Mageia marketing team. We are 
lurking the user/dev discussion groups and trying to pick up feedback as 
well as asking questions to the community to gauge community expectations.

We have to keep in mind that everything has to keep in line with our 
values http://mageia.org/en/about/values/ posted on the site.

It is a community distro and everyone's opinion counts.

Tell us what you feel. We need to hear your opinions.
