"hobbiest" should be "hobbyist"
Were you going to put this on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper?
I find it aggravating to read long (wide) lines of text and would
suggest that you consider wrapping some of the lines at less than the
full width of the paper. (Many "experts" recommend that a line of text
wrap at about 60 characters.) (On the other hand, your overall layout
may be the most visually appealing choice.)
Are you going to combine this with any other text (like some of the
instructions or cautions about using the CD-Roms) -- if so, you could
consider making a "bi-fold" or "tri-fold" approach, with columns on the
front and back (if necessary). (Of course, this might be more trouble
than it is worth.) This would also reduce the width of the text lines.
Is there any statement we could make about the desktop (something
cautious but optimistic) -- some possibilities:
"Already the best server, intending to become the best desktop."
"Not ready (yet!) to take over the desktop."
"Already the best server, aimed at becoming the best desktop."
"Already the best server, help us make it the best desktop."
"A great server, join us as it becomes the best desktop."
"Linux -- today the server and hobbyist, tomorrow the desktop."
-others?-, -any combination of the above?-
Hope this helps!
