> to combine some marketing efforts.
In order to be effective on this we need to agree first about the
target audience(s) of our marketing efforts. This is a question that
is not even clear inside our marketing teams (I'm talking at least
about GNOME here).
Newcomers to marketing efforts start almost always thinking in end
users. I did this myself when approaching GNOME's marketing team.
However, the more we discuss marketing strategies the more I think
that we free desktops need to target other audiences i.e. non-free
application developers or distributions.
End users coming from Windows or Mac get to understand what is a free
OS distribution, but the concept of "free desktop" is generally too
abstract to them.
If we start agreeing the 2-4 target audiences we want to market, then
we will probably have a better foundation to start designing common
