When I am abstracting a bit from what Andreas just contributed, would
you agree that Debian is particularly interesting because of its
community spirit? And that we give everything that we do to as many
people as possible, including Ubuntu? To as many platforms as is
possibly reasonable?

I personally am less interested in attracting end users. Will they
understand our website? Instead, the communication to those developing
for/with Linux already, informing them about Debian's openess also for
them, seems a more worthwhile target. We should stress that there are
many communities specialised to many scientific or application-centric
fields that like to work with them, no matter what exact background they
have. And that any Debian-submitted work is auto-ported to more places
with a larger audience than any other platform.

Many greetings
