I had a chance to take a closer look at Full Circle and the "Ubuntu takes
its rightful place on the keyboard" piece is probably too long (800 words).
It looks like Full Circle is seeking pieces at 200-300 words. I do have
another piece that would be good:

How Ubuntu "just works" with peripherals

P 1 Funny little intro about Ubuntu "just working'

P 2 Quote from University of California professor about how compatibility of
peripherals is the core issue for new adopters

P 3 Anecdotal bit about layperson doing an "Ubuntu remodel" on their home
office, needing compatibility for printer, scanner, camera, etc.

P 4 Short list of resources for various peripherals.

P 5 Brief pep talk about how it can be easy, quote from one of the Ubuntu

P 6 IF I can, I'll get one the videos posted of a bunch of little kids
installing Ubuntu (one is my 5 yo daughter). Some of them can't even read,
but the ones that can read help the others figure it out. The clip I'm
thinking of posting was a short, sweet and successful Ubuntu install. I was
planning on posting it on YouTube and including a link to it.

Can I get some feedback on whether or not an article like this would be
