Why? Look at some of the ads in LJ. they use CMYK and the quality
of the print is quite high (by lay standards. I know professionals
have different criteria).

I find the first part a bit choppy.
Also, having the 'http://www.debian.org/' in a different
font and color breaks up the 2 halves of the text
so both pieces of text should stand on their own. How about:
Do you want an easy to install,
easy to use, highly upgradable
Your one-stop solution
to secure and stable Linux
workstations and servers.
Debian - Get it today!"
A number of people feel we should use a positive approach only in the
ad. So here's some modified text for the box
The Debian GNU/Linux distribution has
several features that set it apart from
o nearly 2000 precompiled packages
o full glibc (libc6) distribution, with
backwards compatibility for legacy applications
o dpkg, Debian's tried and true package manager.
With dpkg you'll never have to reinstall again.
With dpkg everything is upgradable - in place.
As always, Debian comes with the Software you need
o latest Linux kernel; gcc and egcs
o Most recent version of XFree86, Apache web server,
GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program)
BTW, in RH's ads they use 'The most stable, most advanced operating
system'. Bah, that would have to be us.

What about a bullet like:
o Powerful enough to run experiments on the space shuttle
in the feature section?
