What are we?

Postby zeller on Fri Feb 22, 2008 10:28 am

We are Linux users. More than that we are Linux Mint users. Ok, but what are we. So I thought we should come up with a nickname of sorts that would describe Linux Mint users while being more fun than being called a "Linux Mint User".

Anyone with me on this?

Jimmy Buffet has his Parrotheads, why can't we have our Minters? And for the female crowd, something softer: Minties.

I woke up with less sleep today than usual and I'm feeling random. Hence, this post.

You're turn.

Edit:
Here is the list compiled so far --
Mintheads + 3
Minters + 2
Mintare + 2
Minteros + 1
LiMus + 1
Mintards + 1
Mintrats + 1
MinTux + 1
Mintier + 1
Mintees +1
Menthaleau +1
Mints +1
Openminted +1
:no name: + 1

I had quite a few lame ones.
The only one that made any
reasonable sense was, perhaps,
Minters.
It doesn't matter if a glass is half empty or half full.
There is clearly room for more wine.

leave me out please, I'll use linux/linuxmint/debian Or what ever!

But I don't need a title, or should I say another title, my friends call me a fanatic when it comes to linux, at least the nice friends do, the rest have other names amongst which is crazy. :oops:

Well, it certainly doesn't have to be officially empowered and used by Clem, but just for fun I wanted to see what people came up with and if anything stuck. Anyone else?

I support Mintheads as least for an informal name about Mint users...

I like Minters, but what about just calling us 'Mints'? Simple and to the point aye?

Mints sounds like plural for a thing. Not entirely happy with it, but I guess it would be mintheads.
