Our mission is to make sure everyone has access to a free desktop. So
instead of "help you use your computer" perhaps we could say "to make
sure everyone has access to free desktop technology". Although I would

Users will not need to change. They can continue to use GNOME 2.
However, how things change for them is probably more up to the
distribution they use than to us.

We could mention here that you won't need to change anything. The new
features in GNOME will make it easier for you to focus on the tasks
you want to be working on. Your desktop will alert you of things you
wanted to be notified of but it won't interrupt you.

feedback that way.

Is this supposed to be a GNOME 3 brochure or a general GNOME brochure?

A couple of other comments.

* Instead of a picture of me in the about Foundation, I think we
should us a picture of several GNOME folks doing something together.
* The list of company sponsors is outdated. The latest is always shown
