Mint, kills bugs dead.
Mint, it's what's for dinner.
Mint, the other white meat.

Maybe I need to stop pulling ideas from bad 90's commercials. :wink:

Aww, I like "From freedom came elegance". Though, "The other white meat" seems fitting too :P.

your signature. Perhaps you could be clearer? :)


Did i said something bad about you in this forum? I feel kinda being picked by you anyway..
As for my signature, it's a quote from a film, HITMAN to be precise, when he asked the inspector whether he is a good man or not (the inspector said yes, he is) and he asked if the inspector have killed someone before, when the inspector replied yes, then he asked the inspector, "how does a good men decides when to kill?" I mean, what he said is totally right. When you do something bad, it is BAD.. Just something to think about it together here. That's all. But i think you dont like it or take it as something not appropriate to be use here, my apology, noted, but still i think there's nothing wrong with my signature. If it's just because of the word "kill", then kendall use it also on the above post btw.. But, be happy, i've edit my signature for you.. :)
As for the slogan i proposed, it is for some combination of words;
1. Linux Mint
=linux
=free
=fresh
2. Linux = Linux mint (which is free)
3. Linux=free for fresh (linux)Mint
4. Linux mint=free+fresh
5. 6. 7. etc etc..take your pick..

You should choose a distro based on how it looks? Is that the message Mint wants to send? Sorry if that sounds harsh and critical, I don't mean it to be, but the slogan just never spoke to me.

"Linux for human beings" on the other hand says to me "this is linux for ordinary people, not computer nerds, so why don't you try it". I think it's a great slogan, given that that is Ubuntu's target audience. And the irony is, that Mint is even easier to use than Ubuntu.

Marketing is not really my thing. I'm just a straight-talking kinda gal! Maybe something along the lines of "Linux Mint. For free spirits" It's got that cool bohemian thing with a reference to open source. OK, I'm not given up the day job anytime soon!!

From freedom came elegance. It has deeper meaning. From the freedom of the Linux environment came something effective and simple (one meaning of "elegance"). It's true. The "keep it simple" standard is what pulls people away from Windows - to Mac or Linux. Honestly, Ubuntu is a mess to look at. I look at it and see buttons and bars all over. A couple years ago when I dived into Linux with several distros it was Ubuntu that turned me off of Gnome - well Fedora 8 "Werewolf" had a hand in that too. So I started looking at KDE based distros. But even Kubuntu was horrible. PCLinuxOS was bad and I could break it too easily. I stumbled upon openSUSE 10.3 and was happy. I kind of gave up though until recently. I tried openSUSE 11.2 and confused it is a mess and KDE is now crap IMO.

Out of the box? Linux Mint is both simple yet extremely effective. It's menu is by far the easiest to navigate coming from a Windows user. Things are where they should be. I don't get lost with menu under menu under menu like I do with openSUSE 11.2 and confused at the purple (ugh!) mess that is Ubuntu 10.04. Linux is designed cleanly and has a nice selection of wallpapers to help pull you in and make you say, "Wow, they put some effort into this. I like it!"

From freedom came elegance. I like the current slogan quite a bit.

"Linux Mint... we're not just a bunch of leaves..." i duno i tried lol

"Mint - Taste the keyboard" lol
"Mint- Looking good lately?"
"Mint- the other ubuntu"
"Mint- we're not just in your toothpaste" (corney i know but lol)
"Linux Mint - The newest flavour of Linux"
"Linux Mint- Taste our Kernel"
"Linux Mint- Hey Sexy"
"Linux Mint- The lattest distro on your breath"

if any of those get used (i doubt they will lol) just give props to Mas Sergio haahahhaha

or how about
"just mint it"
"Mint yourself"
"How about a Linux Mint?"
"We're much more than An after dinner Mint.."

Mint-Taste the rainbow lol lol lol ok i jacked that form skittles i pirated i know i know. >.<
"Don't win(dows) it! Mint it!"


maybe that guy (or girl) who started this thread is right we should probably also make the name shorter. Lets kill the LINUX part and just call it MINT and then we can call the different version like "MINT"(regular version) and "MINT SP" (Standard Provisionary) for the one that doesn't include the download w/ the plugins and stuff(for legal reasons in the states etc). Alot of times people asked me wich Mint includes the plugins and codecs or what ever and I myself would get confuesed until I read the description. that way we can just tell ppl don't download the SP version becuase it doesn't come with jack lol.

Hmmm, sounds good but "green" is associated with power savings these days. Does Linux Mint help conserve energy or the environment?

I suggest no slogan at all. The name "Linux Mint" is concise and elegant enough without proclaiming it.

Slogans are not used much in advertising anymore. [Ubuntu appears to have dropped their "Linux for Human Beings" and I'm glad they did; it was a silly distraction.] Focus on the benefits, not on some "new age" aura.

Aww, I always loved the slogan for mint, even before I used mint. It's classy and fitting, I think.

Simply Fresh

Simple and to the point. It expresses that mint is simple to use and something fresh and new for your PC, not something that is old and bloated.

Im not against a new slogan by any means, But i do like and have always liked the current slogan, " From Freedom Came Elegance"
im not doubting your intelligence, or claiming you dont know what elegance is, im saying this to explain why i like the phrase, From Wikipedia the definition of elegance:

Elegance is the attribute of being unusually effective and simple. It is frequently used as a standard of tastefulness, particularly in the areas of visual design and decoration. Elegant things exhibit refined grace and dignified propriety.
Some associate elegance with simplicity and consistency of design, focusing on the main or basic features of an object, its dignified gracefulness, or restrained beauty of style. One may also attribute elegance to place something in an opulent light—a in tasteful richness of design or ornamentation "the sumptuous elegance of the furnishings.


WHATS BETTER THAN THAT?!?!?! From Freedom Came Linux Mint, Being Free to do what you want, having no limits, from being free, came linux mint, from being free came elegance, "From Freedom Came Elegance"
