Linux Mint Mag Official Name Discussion

Postby dequire on Tue Sep 01, 2009 1:22 pm

One of the first things we need to do for the upcoming Linux Mint Online Mag is to decide on a name. We need this ASAP to help set up email accounts, domain names, etc. etc.

Throw some ideas out there and I will make a poll and go from there! Some off the top of my head:

    Linux Mint Magazine (duh ;) )
    Linux Mint Monthly
    Mint Tea
    Mint-ed or Minted
    Mint Online
    The Mint Gazette
    Slick Mint
    Journal de Mint

Other ideas?
They'll all look at me and say,
Hey look at him! I'll never live that way.
But that's okay -
They're just afraid to change.

I vote for this one. There's a certain gravitas to the name. Sort of like the old Dr. Dobb's Journal.

personally best feeling was with "Mint Mag" without linux... mint will be a brand for linux mint ^^

also Mint Magazine sounds nice to me...

since 2006/2007 this idea of a mint magazine ghosing this forums but nothing ever happened ^^ please do it this time, thats much potential in it!

P.S.: There is a german free online magazine (opensource, using LATEX) writing monthly about news, hints, suggestions in Linux and OpenSource.
They are called "FreiesMagazin". Maybe you have a look at it, it is very professional --> PDF August 2009

This has to be taken into consideration . . . there is another company . Mint.com, a financial enterprise, which may or may not be concerned with the name.

May have to have something distinctly "Linux Mint" in the title ? Someone may want to email Husse or Clem about any naming concerns.

Well in my opinion, and this is only my opinion, so take it with a grain of salt or maybe some pepper, I think personally the name should be anything other than a play on words. Plays on words are great for comedies and stand up acts, but for a more serious approach to people of common intellect and interests seeking knowledge with queries about about a High Quality unsurpassable distribution in comparison to other distributions, a more sound or strong name that reflects the product is needed.
An up front name like the ones I've seen already posted, I believe are really good.
Such as:

Linux Mint Monthly
Linux Mint Magazine
The Mint Gazette
Linux Mint Journal

Things of that nature.
If an alternate approach is desired, then try and base the name around the actual meaning and what it stands for, of the product itself.
In this particular instance, a name based on a fresh, clean, elegant look.
Keywords such as "Freedom", "Clean", "Fresh", "Elegant", etc. to be used synonymously as part of the name.
Like I said, this just my opinion, so take it with a grain of salt.
Thank You for taking the time to read this message.

Okay, my 2 cents:

To follow up on the last post, what about: "Minty Fresh" referring to the fresh, clean desktop and theme that it starts off with.... Also since we aim to provide someting new each month....

Or, since we have a couple of different desktops/distros, like Gnome, KDE, XCFE, etc., I was thinking of: "Flavors of Mint". Again having to do with the differnet things in the mag each month....

I like that idea. I also like it reversed as well or better: Fresh Mint. Clean, simple, elegant...

Chris is also right... at the opposite of what I just posted... but he's right.
But, ultimately the name depend on how Fresh the Mag is supposed to be.
Formal, pure technical contents ? or fresh, technical but aiming at the newcomers ?
