I have a hard time believing that this is a marketting thing.  I think
it's about _you_ and what _you_ like/dislike.  I recall making some
arguements about what goes into Debian in order to make it more markettable
to the masses and you just flat out rejected me.  I'm not saying that
those decisions were wrong, but they were definitely based on your
beliefs and not on what is "markettable".
