Clear message is a good point. We all have our own viewpoints; my view
on "what we're selling", is: We are advocating 2 things, The Ubuntu
Project as a whole and the Ubuntu LoCo organization (specifically
Texas Team).

    From the Ubuntu project, you get an easy to use operating system
and online community of friendly folk. From the Ubuntu LoCo
Organization you get a network of people you can meet face to face.
Ubuntu's Emphasis on community is a fundamental element to the overall
project, and the LoCo Organization is a vector through which that
community can be reached. General tech support problems, events, or
hell just someone who will sit over beers with you because he/she
-actually- wants to hear about your "DIY compiled kernel"/"network
infastructure"/"sweet new app\script you've been working on"

I'm selling community, because it's why I am here.

anyone else?
