And there I was under the impression our brand is LinuxMint
or just Mint.
We even have our own drink! How many other Linux Distributions do you know of that gives you a free complimentary drink on the house? Simply go to "The Mint Café"
and get your complimentary drink.
Anyway, I respect your opinion and feel free to contribute towards this distro. We have our resident Artists that does an effing brilliant job and if the Boss-Man
himself likes the idea/image/suggestion it gets included. Also, there is regular ad hoc
polls about what to do next etc and based on the result of that - well, follow the posts on the forum and you'll get the picture.
To get back to your point about branding. Ubuntu goes overboard with their branding and (personally) it gets on my tits. If I have Ubuntu installed on my machine, I know
I'm using it, I don't want to be constantly reminded of it whatever I do and where ever I look on my machine, seeing the logo/name etc everywhere. IMO that is for retards that suffer from Goldfish Memory Syndrome
This is a fairly new disto so the emphasis is to get the technical side of things as close to perfect as possible. After that, all the bells and whistles will follow.
