You might also want to mention better Chinese and Korean support too.
CJK support has improved greatly since slink.
If it is not too verbose, perhaps you could list all the supported
languages in the press release. (How many? 14? 20? 30?) For
example, that's one of the points that XLinux and Mandrake boasted: the
extensive i18n/L10n support. Somehow, I believe that Debian would be
no less universal than XLinux and Mandrake, simply because of the sheer
numbers of developers from just about every country in the world. :-)
