Ubuntu does a Dell, and wants you to brainstorm (via Slashdot)with it on what features you want in it. It is a good idea, but to be really effective it has to attract people who are not being heard, or who are not on Linux, or who feel that Ubuntu is too geeky to be used. Otherwise it will have votes from the same old already-vocal slashdotters, diggers and the existing geeks. This needs to go out of the Linux ecosystem, into the non-Linux land, including the corporates. Then this will help Ubuntu bring in the popular perspective.
