Some might use Windows :)

I've not since 2000 and something.

It depends who you want to reach and the _reason_ for reaching them, if 
you want to reach dev's then I'd say that this list is probably the best 

I'd not say the forum is the best place for this - might sound strange 
to some ;)

If it's a 'we did this great stuff with Xubuntu' then perhaps some of 
the 'social' media type platforms.

It does depend on who you want to reach.
