i would agree in general; so when we do speak with more "market friendly"
terms at times, we need to find a way to remind the community about the
rest of our communication which is quite dry and straight forward.
the initial reaction to this article is a good example of why.

to me that just means we need to re-shape "marketing" a bit, just as we
have re-shaped development methodologies a bit. certainly a challenge, but
challenges are fun.

because this has not worked on the desktop side of things, and for pretty
obvious reasons. while the server side of the market is indeed populated
primarily by sophisticated, tech-aware people who are used to dealing with
technical terms, complex ideas and community networking on- and off-line,
the desktop market is very, very different.
