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

re: i've got some suggestions..

lolol good ones, don't know which I like best. The lizard one is up there at the top.

On the other hand

Some funny ones at:

  • 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!

  • Canonical, Snappy and the marketing value of collaboration
    Canonical implies it is collaborating with nearly every major Linux distro for its Snappy project. It is not. And what could have been a marketing win for it is now a loss.
  • How to install MongoDB community edition on Ubuntu Linux
    MongoDB is a NoSQL database that avoids the traditional structure of relational databases in favor of document-oriented JSON-like objects. What this translates to is the integration between application and data is faster and easier. If that's not enough, consider this: MongoDB is one the databases preferred by big data and large enterprise companies, including Adobe, Craigslist, eBay, FIFA, Foursquare, and LinkedIn.
  • No WhatsApp, but fixes set to come for Ubuntu Phone
    Users of the Ubuntu Phone will have to get used to the fact that popular Android apps like WhatsApp are unlikely to be made available for the platform, at least not in in the short term. Facebook owns WhatsApp and the communications app now has more than a billion users.
  • Ubuntu Developers Discuss Again About Dropping Support For 32-bit x86
    Ubuntu developers are once again pondering the possibility of dropping support for i386 (32-bit x86) as installation media for their Linux distribution. The matter of dropping Ubuntu i386 ISOs has been brought up many times the past few years, but ultimately it's kept getting pushed back for users still running Ubuntu Linux on old hardware and other reasons. Dropping Ubuntu for i386 keeps getting brought up namely for the installer media rather than the i386 package archive itself.

Android Apps Turn Chromebooks Into Macbook Killers

  • Android Apps Turn Chromebooks Into Macbook Killers
    When Chromebooks launched in the summer of 2011, they seemed destined to fail, much like the underpowered, internet-dependent netbooks that came before them. But in the five years since, Chromebooks have defied expectations, becoming the most used device in US classrooms and even outselling Macs for the first time this year. Still, people complain about their inability to run useful software, but that’s all about to change.
