Working on marketing plan for LI now. Not really much of interest to report yet.

The primary goal of LI is to promote Linux use in the changed world we now live on.... Where there aren't really any Linux companies anymore, and Linux is one of the OS' supported by software developers.

That means we'll need to develop a new strategy for growing Linux as we move into this more mature technical phase of adoption - one which addresses the unique needs of developers, vendors, and users.

Developers are being offerred standards by FSG, testing environment by OSDL, and source code sharing services by SourceForge.

Potential users are put off by the percieved lack of software (if it's not on a shelf, in a catalog, or in a box, it must not exist)

So, we're working on programs that will allow us to coordinate these groups and continue to build Linux use.
