If we find a way to talk directly to the top level managers (not to
the bottom or middle level management where our requests may suddenly
disappear) or if we can get a firm comittement from some internal
representative, that would be definitely a leap in the good direction.
I think, what matters right now is to get them *aware* of the
importance of Linux nowadays but I won't go for bad publicity to
achieve that. Right now the issue is Phoenix/Toshiba (not just
Toshiba) since the former are responsible for providing the most
important piece of code in the computer, namely the BIOS.
