Do we actually have time to care about marketing? Our 3-4 people dev guys (len-ovenwerks, ailo, micahg, scott-work) spend their life working on this. I have to do testing for testcases that no one wants to do or has the ability to do it. ailo also worked hard on documentation. scott-work spend his working hours helping us along the way.
We are just volunteers. We of course don't know about everything. I do think the marketing is not quite enough as the other distros (like Xubuntu, who has their own marketing lead). But then we are not geniuses. Please keep that in mind.
Also if you want to help with marketing there IS a way. There is a Ubuntu Marketing Team in Launchpad, and a #ubuntu-marketing channel in Freenode IRC, which wants to solve Bug #1 (aka to beat Windows and Mac OS X by Marketing).
You seemed to be attacking on us. But then please think twice. We are not enough of people already. We desperately need more volunteers, and by diving them into groups we want to ensure that EVERYBODY even novices can help to make the release better. There aren't a lot of people who are advanced users. We want as much help as we can.
So, if you can help us on marketing please do, but please not say we are childish, we are not.
