I would promote more the debian-publicity@lists.debian.org mailing list
that we started after the last Debconf.


People started submitting stuff to improve our marketing, now we needs
some more volunteers who start playing a more active role and actually
organize this group.

The problem is reversed, once Dell understands that people are asking for
Linux, they will start checking how they can properly support it and then
we need to make sure they understand that Debian is one of the most
important distribution out there (given that the Ubuntu distribution that
is so popular on www.dellideastorm.com is a Debian derivative) and that
they should work with us to ensure their hardware is properly supported.
