Wouldn't we have to impliment the star trek's L-CARS user interface for this?

A couple of ideas I got centered on the "tasty mint" concept :mrgreen:

Mint. The tasty Linux.

Mint. Linux made tasty.

Mint. It tastes better. => argh it already exists! http://www.brownschicken.com/ :cry:

and

Mint. Linux freshness.

:lol:

Better not use these, I'm getting hungry already. My next post will be how Mint helped me gain 200 pounds... :lol:

We could just play on peoples paranoia and say Linux Mint... Use it or They will know.... :twisted:

Seriously though, the original slogan is great and need not be changed.
"Contrariwise", continued Tweedledee, "if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic."

Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass, Chapter 4

think different. would've been perfect if only if apple didn't claim it first
so maybe instead of think different, what about "do different" or "be different"?

Old slogan is very clear. Maybe the word "came" is more complicated, but in this world everyone can figure out the meaning.

Im a fairly new Mint user and I've never been convinced by the slogan - its pretty good but not great. IMHO to much focus on freedom. I belive that most ordinary computer users want a OS that simply works, is visually appealing and is free (that is, free as in cheap, not as in open source-free). Not if they use proprietary software or not. Maybe this is another issue, but its surely an issue that affects the slogan.

So what do we want to say with the slogan? What message do we want to give? If we want to focus on freedom and elegance, then we could keep the current slogan.

But in the end I agree on some earlier replies: does Linux Mint really need a slogan? I think it would be mature, bold and elegant to perhaps remove it completely.

Just some spontaneous thoughts.

In the UK there is a sweet (candy) called Polo it's slogan is "The mint with a hole " That sounds like a Mint CD to me
Is it the same candy known in the USA as a Lifesaver?

I don't think so.

As far as I know, Polo is Nestle's product and trademark, Lifesaver is Kraft's.
But it seems like Polo's slogan is applicable to Mint. :mrgreen:

Although there might be legal issues involved in stealing another companies slogan ;)

Still, as i said before the slogan is fine for what Mint is, a distro based and improving on Ubuntu (which might be hard with 10.04). But if we ever want to branch off and become a completely separate distro then it certainly needs changing.

Here are some of my ideas for slogans:

1) Linux Mint- Think Elegance,Think Freedom,Think Mint
2) Linux Mint- Greener,Better,Sexier,Easier,Mintier
3) Linux Mint- Choose Elegance,Choose Freedom,Choose Mint
4) Linux Mint- Linux..But Greener
5) Linux Mint- The Minty Side Of Linux
6) Linux Mint- Superiority Is Green

These four words describe this distro as much as a short slogan can so it shouldn't be changed.

What about this one:

MINT-Just green, just good.

Or too commercial?
