Re: I need for some copywriting for

about the trademarks issue, I guess we could put something like "if you or the company you work for provide any way to get the gnome desktop, <a href="" link with someone dedicated to this page>please let us know!</a>, that way they cannot say that we didn't gave them a way to appear on the linux distributors page. The same for the proyect page, only that proyects needs to be selected 'cause we only have to showcase the highlights, the best gnome software only, I guess the most used (gimp, rhythmbox, bmp, firefox, dia, epyphany, gaim, etc) and exiting some new proyects (dashboard, beagle, etc)

most of "everyone" that a) don't know that computers were fun anytime or
b) don't think that computers aren't fun nowadays (even if they only use
proprietary software).

Do we need to put trademarks/companies here? I know GNOME owes them a
lot, but the risk of making others feel excluded are high. For instance,
what about Canonical/Ubuntu who is being a very popular GNOME showcase
for many new Linux users? I'm sure others may find other examples.

How about:

Easy to get

Becoming a GNOME user has never been easier. GNOME is the default
desktop [supported by many Linux distributions] and [Solaris].
