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.

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..

  • 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!

Ubuntu vs. Fedora Linux On Lenovo's X1 Carbon With Core i7 Broadwell

The latest distribution I tried on the X1 Carbon (and the OS I'll ultimately use for running the X1 Carbon in a production capacity as my main system) is Fedora 21. Fedora 21 booted up on the X1 Carbon wonderfully without any issues aside from the trackpoint button clicks being wonky (though the button clicks in the corner of the trackpad works fine). Fedora 21 with Wayland also ran fine on this system with Intel HD Graphics 5500. Overall, it was a pleasant experience without any major problems. Read more

Linux vs Windows

I've been working with both Linux and MS Windows 7 lately. Yes, I have a good excuse for using MS Windows: I have started working on Ruby video tutorials, and I needed to demonstrate installation of ruby, notepad++, and configuration thereof in the MS Windows environment. Well, it's been illuminating, switching back and forth between Kubuntu 14.10 and Microsoft Windows 7. The desktops are pretty much equal. However, Linux KDE has stolen a march on the Windows 7 desktop regarding configurability of the desktop experience--of course, I'm vastly more experienced with Linux and the KDE desktop. Also, Linux is better on multitasking. Often, MS Windows 7 would almost freeze a few moments when working on several tasks. I also had some issues getting my sound card working well with Windows 7--which is an older sound-blaster (5.1) card. But, I've had similar problems with getting audio in the Linux environment working too. However, the online help and assistance you can get with Linux seems much better. Purchasing a screen recorder and a basic video editor with MS Windows 7 was also interesting. Although reading countless reviews, I had a difficult time getting a cheap screen recorder that was good on both the video and audio portions of screen recording, and would work properly on 1920x1080 recordings. And all the "free stuff" you download for Microsoft Windows is cripple ware. The Windows software environment is based on deception: "It's Free!". After downloading and installing, you find it won't do nearly what you wanted until you send them $xx.xx! I almost bought "Camtasia Studio", which, by all accounts, is good screen recording and editing software. But I couldn't justify spending $299.99 on software I was only going to use for producing 10 minutes of video demonstration. I know the preceding paragraph seems somewhat naive, but after using only Linux for so long, I haven't faced anything like this for many years. The one good thing to say about MS Windows 7 is that Notepad++ is a good "totally freeware" text editor. The remainder of the video tutorial series will be done solely in Linux--with Kdenlive 0.9.10 (where I finally learned to do "Pan and Zoom") and SimpleScreenRecorder 0.3.3. I'm going to send both of them a few $$. It's good to be back.
