How about #marketing? It doesn't exist, so it should be pretty
empty :)

I really like the slogan "GNOME. My desktop of choice." Really
excellent. I like the other "Who says..." one less - not sure
why, it just doesn't sound right (the first thing I thought after
reading it was "no-one does", but perhaps I'm being naive).

If the desired effect is a pensive person in a landscape
situation, I am sure that we can lay our hands on such an image . 

Speaking of laying our hands on stuff - could we start collecting
contacts in the marketing departments of our benefactor
companies? I think it would be really useful to start collecting
sugar daddies for when we want someone to cover printing costs
and the like :)

I really liked the logo bit, actually :)

I think the two matter equally ;) Good visuals with bad text will
ruin a poster.
