Ubuntu looks as though they have taken a page from Dell’s book. The Ubuntu team just launched a new feedback site called Brainstorm which closely resembles the Dell IdeaStorm site that was launched over a year ago. It provides a Digg-like voting interface to figure out what the community would really like to see come out of Ubuntu in the future.
Honestly I think it is an ingenious idea to turn to the community to see what they want out of their operating system. I have to say that the community really appears to be liking the new feedback system as well because there are well over a thousand individual votes for some of the submissions (you must be a registered user to vote, too). Aside from just voting you can also leave comments to give ideas or add to what the original submitter had said.
