[ubuntu-uk] Ubuntu Support Line

I wonder if anyone has ever thought about setting up an Ubuntu
community support line?

Using VoIP technology it's not actually too difficult to get a
landline number routed to VoIP at little or no cost.

Does anyone think that setting up a voluntary 'community help desk'
telephone line could help promote the take-up of Ubuntu amongst
non-technical people.

I had this idea whilst reading the other thread about including
sources of support on CD inserts. I can't help but think a telephone
number would make a service especially appealing. Routing it to VoIP
makes manning the telephone line a non-hardship too, as the 'operator'
can simply sit and go about their own thing until a call comes

I'm quite interested in this concept and willing to set it up if
anyone else has any interest in it.

What do you think?
