If any cash ever does trickle in, count my vote for the above bandwidth.
Also for the purchase and configuration of a big raid array on the
xfce/lunar server with lots of space for developers.

Love it, but could not attend (I'm not sure if I'm afraid of flying over
the Atlantic or afraid of the cost of flying).

Yes, good idea. I like it.

After Novell's purchase of Ximian, the gnome desktop has tons of money
to lobby the big guys with. Aparently they have been quite successful
with hp, so it would be tough to compete with them on this turf. Maybe
we can sneak in if they leave the door open, which I think they might...
