Help Create Opensuse Slogan!

Filed under
SUSE

As you may or may not know, openSUSE is in need of a slogan, a mission statement, a "one-liner", if you will. Ubuntu has their "Linux for human beings" slogan, now it's time to help create ours. This is an awesome chance to help define how the openSUSE project will be presented to the masses.

The brunt of the discussion is happening on the openSUSE-project mailing list, which you can read by clicking on this link (the initial message is posted below). You may either submit your "one-liner" to the mailing list, add it to the Slogan WIKI page, or both.

Link.

See current suggestions on the The Slogan WIKI page.



i've got some suggestions..

OpenSuSE - once you go green you can't go back
OpenSuSE - we came up with compiz, remember?
OpenSuSE - last time we checked, we were number 2 on distrowatch
OpenSuSE - we still hate Microsoft
OpenSuSE - other distros take credit for our work
OpenSuSE - we don't suck, because we're not ubuntu
OpenSuSE - gotta love Gecko
OpenSuSE - lizards are cute too
OpenSuSE - our irc channel is ruled by nazis (no kiddin!)
OpenSuSE - you ungratful bastards
OpenSuSE - we like to think we're funny
OpenSuSE - we can't think of anything else

  • openSUSE – Because Vista Is Expensive
  • openSUSE – We're Now Americans, And Steve Is Our Friend
  • openSUSE – Our MONO Culture Is Not Microsoft (Yet)
  • openSUSE – Forget About Ron, Some Of Us Are Still Germans!

re: suse slogans

Not a fan personally (but don't dislike it - just don't see the advantage over RHEL or Fedora to go thru the learning curve).

So from the sidelines, here's my slogan efforts:

OpenSuse - we didn't sell out, that's SUSE
OpenSuse - completely brown-free themes
OpenSuse - we like root
OpenSuse - our Mascot rocks!
OpenSuse - cd's are for suckers, we come on a DVD
OpenSuse - Yast, it could be worse
OpenSuse - German Engineering (need I say more)

re: suse slogans

teeheehe Good ones!

Security Leftovers

  • Security updates for Wednesday
  • Microsoft says its best not to fiddle with its Windows 10 group policies (that don't work)

    On Monday, we revealed that a security researcher had used a packet sniffer to show that many settings designed to prevent access to the internet were being ignored with connections to a range of third party servers including advertising hubs.

  • What's got a vast attack surface and runs on Linux? Windows Defender, of course
    Google Project Zero's Windows bug-hunter and fuzz-boffin Tavis Ormandy has given the world an insight into how he works so fast: he works on Linux, and with the release of a personal project on GitHub, others can too. Ormandy's project is to port Windows DLLs to Linux for his vuln tests (“So that's how he works so fast!” Penguinistas around the world are saying). Typically self-effacing, Ormandy made this simple announcement on Twitter (to a reception mixing admiration, humour, and horror):
  • Hacked in Translation – from Subtitles to Complete Takeover
    Check Point researchers revealed a new attack vector which threatens millions of users worldwide – attack by subtitles. By crafting malicious subtitle files, which are then downloaded by a victim’s media player, attackers can take complete control over any type of device via vulnerabilities found in many popular streaming platforms, including VLC, Kodi (XBMC), Popcorn-Time and strem.io. We estimate there are approximately 200 million video players and streamers that currently run the vulnerable software, making this one of the most widespread, easily accessed and zero-resistance vulnerability reported in recent years.
  • A Samba remote code execution vulnerability
    Distributors are already shipping the fix; there's also a workaround in the advisory for those who cannot update immediately.

KDE, Qt, GTK and GNOME News

  • KDE Plasma 5.8.7 LTS Desktop Environment Released with over 60 Improvements
    KDE has announced today the release and immediate availability of the seventh maintenance update to the long-term supported KDE Plasma 5.8 desktop environment. KDE Plasma 5.8.7 LTS is now considered the latest stable and most advanced version of the KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS (Long Term Support) desktop environment, which some of you out there are probably using on your favorite GNU/Linux distributions instead of a short-lived branch like KDE Plasma 5.9 or the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.10 release.
  • Summer of Coding!
    After a month of dread and panicking about the fact that Google Summer of Code results are announced in the middle of exam season... I'm happy to say I'll be doing the Rust plugin for KDevelop!
  • Qt 5.9 Release Candidate Available For Testing
  • Qt 5.9.0 RC released

  • The Road to GTK+ 4 Continues, New Milestone Adds Initial OS X and Meson Support
    A new milestone was released recently, GTK+ 3.91.0, which adds quite a bunch of improvements and bug fixes, but also some new APIs and compatibility with other supported operating systems besides those based on the Linux kernel. For example, GTK+ 3.91.0 implements initial support for Apple's macOS platform, which will make it possible to run apps written in GTK+ 4 on OS X.
  • Epiphany Browser Updated for GNOME 3.25.2 with New Shortcuts for Switching Tabs
