Or perhaps rolling up your sleeves and contributing. There's no shortage of things our community wants and needs to achieve, but there's always a shortage of people who'll be prepared to make them happen. You want to promote Linux? Get with people who have the same itch and make it happen - the council would *love*it* if more people got involved!
So how about it, why not focusing our efforts towards promoting, supporting, and developing free and open source software, including the Linux kernel alongside userspace, rather than arguing over 'meta' endlessly?
