Use the results of the "Desktop Linux Client Survey" to improve Ubuntu

Registered by Marco Costantini on 2007-11-26

The "Desktop Linux Client Survey" at http://old.linux-foundation.org/dtl/DTL_Survey_Report_Nov2005.pdf
reports:
* Top reasons for deploying Linux on the desktop
* Applications critical to Linux deployment
* Browser applications and plug-ins that must be supported
* Top inhibitors of Linux desktop adoption

The reasons for adopting Linux should be more advertised.

It is necessary to provide the critical applications and required browser plugins, possibly installed by default, and ensure that they are clearly documented and accessible. If something is not available as free software, a project for it should be launched, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HighPriorityFreeSoftwareProjects

It is necessary to remove the inhibitors of Linux desktop adoption.
