Help Create Opensuse Slogan!

Filed under

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.


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!

Suse: Question. What do you call second-place in ARM enterprise server linux? Answer: Red Hat

ARM TechCon Suse is claiming victory over Red Hat by announcing – and these caveats are all crucial – "the first commercial enterprise Linux distribution optimized for ARM AArch64 architecture servers." In plainer English, Suse has developed an enterprise-grade Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit ARM servers (should you happen to ever find one). Suse claims this software is a world first because it is a finished commercial product, thus beating Red Hat to the punch: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM is still only available as a beta-like development preview.
