Spoken like someone who has an interest in selling HA and
clustered systems to the enterprise market.  :)

Seriously, though, these are good topics and I think we
need to cover them.  Personally, my business focuses on
selling systems at the lower end of the company size
spectrum (say 20 - 100 users) so things I'd like to see
covered, over time, include:

* SAMBA, connecting Macs and PCs into a Linux network.
* LDAP, for authentication, etc.
* Web services, content management, etc.
* Linux on the desktop, where it's at and where it's

I think we probably need to get a list of topics we want
to target, a list of the types of companies / govt agencies
we want to target them at, and work from there.  I have
some PR folks that can take care of getting the stories
into the press, etc.

Can we get some kind of working committee together to put
together a strategy for doing this?  Who's interested?
