Re: Translation Efforts
At the risk of making yet another proposal to increase the workload of
others, I'd like to suggest a "What users have to say about us" section,
prominently displayed, so that newcomers to the site can get it within ten
or fifteen seconds before they get bored. It
is somewhat out of sync with the solemn tone of the current web pages, but I
think a little hype wouldn't hurt. Every PC magazine gives Red Hat the
number one rating, probably just because it always looks best to support the
perceived winner. There are plenty of examples like Brandon's message.
