Just to mention I have sent (unrequested) emails to the editorial
staff of newspapers (note1) requesting more features on computers etc,
and giving a short item on free and open source software, with Ubuntu
also mentioned, in context.

I led with the idea of free software - after a recent contact with
Chris Warburton on the marketing list, because I am persuaded that
incoming users are likely to be attracted initially by 'free' rather
than esoteric debate about society or human rights. I also think that
use of open source in windows is another possible route fro
introduction to greater computing sanity. In this area I am
'competing' for interest from people who can probably get most of
their software free but not legally perhaps.
