Mint needs COOL Tshirts, not just Izod looking ones

On this site and Amazon the only Mint TShirts I see are with the little embroidered logo in the top right of the shirt, like some company shirt. Who wants to wear that, really, it's too much like a uniform.

Other distros like Kali have Tshirts that are much less formal and hipper looking. And say cool stuff.

Years ago when I was using Xandros Linux, they had tee shirts with the Xandros logo on the front, and on the back they said either, "In a world without fences, who needs Gates?" or "In a world without walls, who needs Windows?" I just plum wore those shirts out. Wish I had bought a few more of them!

The words 'cool' and 'Linux T-shirt' should never appear in the same sentence, IMO. :mrgreen:

I'm not YET that hardcore, but I'm getting there, hah.

I'm 59 and have never gotten a tattoo, Hmm...

I am getting a tea shirt printed with the penguin logo and with Linux Mint. Underneath it will say:

Il Est Interdit d' Interdire


A great logo for the free wheelin' Linux community - "It is forbidden to forbid!"

:D

Good idea, many might not get it though, but the best ones make people ask!

You've got it in one! :lol:

That's the idea.

"Hello! Il est inter....err what?! What's that mean then?"

"Well you see, it like this...Linux Mint is an operating system which is all about freedom. No legal jargon. No thousand page EULA which you'll never understand. No spying by corporate interests. It's yours to do what you want. Join the Linux community or remain a corporate slave."

And that's just one opener! :D

That's IT! Maybe we need to start a thread with ideas for Mint TShirt and Jacket catch phrases that we suggest openly and share like that, and that Clem can authorize for sale donations.

The Mint logo, sadly, isn't so badass looking as the Kali logo, though Kali logo kinda tells you that the Distro is something elite.

Mint could say "fresh" in it's logo, the logo as is is very professional and kinda corporate, but it doesn't have the fun of some other logos. My apologies to the creators! I'm no marketer, but I have wondered about this. On the one hand a logo that speaks "stable, solide, dependable" is good, but on the other hand, one that says "boring, overly geeky, corporate" might make people shy away. Face it, men, and many women, are very apperence oriented, watch the dating app TV adds "oh, he's cute", like that is the important thing...
