I guess there are a lot more projects (Probably some similar to this idea)
that could do with work/help rather than creating one at the possibility of
it not coming into fruition, as raising enough money and getting the advert
done correctly would be a pretty big problem in itself, I guess.

Suppose something like commercial advertising of Ubuntu is left to the guys
who have the money, but that's not to say we should stop campaigning for the
the release of lucid, eh?
