>> Well, what does Mageia have what others do not have?
>> 1. Technically, nothing. We could just copy the Mandriva marketing
>> phrases about excellent hardware recognition, ease of use, draktools,
>> etc.
>> 2. Looks: well, pls artwork-team, don't take it personally, but the
>> look is the very last item I would use to advertize the product. It is
>> a technical product, which should be described by its technical
>> features, not by its looks (everybody can make Ubuntu look like Mageia
>> and vice versa). Back to #1.
> I do not agree :) *you* do not think it's important but be carefull

See the last paragraph of my mail - of course I am aware of different
target groups :)

>> What we have other than most distributions in our area: the fact that
>> it is community based with all related implications. The organisation,
>> the fact that no commercial management can dictate the way Mageia will
>> take - the opportunity for the user to be more integrated in the
>> future of this distribution than anywhere else.
>> Of course this will only get the attention of people who care for
>> these points. Others, like those who buy their car on the color of the
>> carpeting, must be attracted by nice artwork. So, here we really have
>> the difference between targets.
