Re: New Slogan?

I must admit I've never liked the slogan. I mean, what is it really saying? "You've tried all the other distros, now use this one cos it looks 'elegant'?" 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 i...

Re: A thread specifically for text & "marketing copy"

Snap, you've got loads of great ideas, these are my favs:

"Linux isn't supposed to be this good" ** maybe even change the word "good" to "easy"?**
"Get your PC in mint condition - Linux Mint"
"Give your PC a taste (of)..."
"For computer users with taste"

How about "Linux Mint - it's a tasty pc"

Re: Discuss ways to promote Mint here

Reverend, your images are awesome. I like the "Taste Mint" idea, and the cake ad looked gorgeous - but then I do have a terrible sweet tooth! Just to throw an idea out there: the word "mint" is also used in a currency context (i.e. coins are made in a mint). Don't know if this is just a UK saying or...

Re: Promotional material

Hi stressonthesky, Take a look at the following page and you'll see what you can and can't use in Wordpress. (NB in case anyone gets confused, wordpress.com is different from wordpress.org. I'm talking about wordpress.com, where they host the blog for you). http://support.wordpress.com/code/ I think...

Re: Promotional material

What I would therefore propose would be to make use of current web technologies (json, javascript libraries etc) to create some of these so called widgets, perhaps a download type counter to start with. Fairly easy to create using cross domain json, implemented with sprinkling of javascript and som...

Re: Promotional material

Cool!! I just asked about this!

Re: Linux Mint graphic ad for websites

I've had a play about with a blog graphic to link to the Mint site and I've inserted below what I've come up with. I've used the official logo plus the darker version of the official wallpaper that Zwopper created, see http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=26182 . Please let me know what ...

Linux Mint graphic ad for websites

Hi, I'm wondering if Mint has any kind of graphic that could be put, for example, on a wordpress blog. In the run up to Ubuntu Jaunty's release, they had a pic that counted down the days until release and now just says "Ubuntu 9.04 It's here". (You can see an example on my site at http://mesanna.com...
