+1 Personally I don't see a real need for the laptop immediately.

Not really. Half the crowd wouldn't know the local languages because
there are so many. The only common language everyone would know in India
is English. I really don't know about other Asian countries :( So if it
applies to them, yes we should have them all translated.

Right. I get that a lot from many people. People are willing to buy a
lot of GNOME stuff. They really like to sport it passionately. They just
don't know where to buy them from in India.

A store would always be very useful. Maybe start one on a small scale,
then seeing the success expand it over time.
