Just wanted to thank alot of people responding to me personally. Its
great to feel the support from the cummunity.

We are currently working on our business model and how to packet our
solutions in the form we want it to move to market. Its challenging and
every step is a milestone. I hope we can get there.

Canonical and the Ubuntu team are really doing a fantastic job, and we
will make sure to push the work we do ourselves upstreams once we head
to the techy part of the work.
