I use AdWords for my company. I will never buy others peoples brand
names as a mean to spread my reach. Basically because I hate when
others do that.

I will love to see sponsoring links from Fedora.

I think is something really different from what we have done. But I
also think that to get other peoples "buying" this idea we need less
words. As most of us have lives beyond Fedora, when I reach an email
two screen long, I don't read it properly.  Sorry, I just can't. Those
emails make me feel depress, takes out the fifth F of Fedora = FUN. I
automatically switch to skim-reading-mode, scroll down fast to the end
and move the message out of my inbox. I am not "alien" to market
ideas, I felt more like a "10 yeard old kid" with a short span
attention ... less words, less "old-man-battle-tales"...  as a kid, I
need something short and fun to keep reading.
