Btw. there's Linux software available for "Moonbounce or
Earth-Moon-Earth (EME) is a way of communicating by reflecting radio
signals from the Moon between two suitably equipped stations." -

The radio link also mentions Marble.

IMO Marble could be used to describe the difference between Linux for
special tasks and what's expected by averaged users.

The idea of Marbel is very good, an enthusiasts will appreciate Marbel.
A user that expects an alternative to Street View in Google Earth
unlikely will use Marbel as a replacement.

IMO this is applicable for Linux audio compared to Non-Linux audio
alternatives. Perhaps the target group for PR and what is provided
by Ubuntu Studio should be enthusiasts and not the averaged computer
