No, it isn't. Although, I really like the most: "openSUSE is good for you."
Pfff... This is completely boring and meaningless. Back to the drawing board!
Thomas, that is because you have seen it many times.
I agree. I don't think it attracts the attention. I prefer something which tells me _why_ openSUSE is good for me, even if it doesn't give me a complete description of the product, which is not the goal of a slogan anyway.
That is the job for the second sentence (slogan). This one already did its job, making you to think:"Why it is good for me?"
People don't know what is openSUSE, telling: openSUSE is good for you will attract attention. Than you have chance to answer, what is openSUSE and why it is good.
All the slogans:
openSUSE - Works out of the box openSUSE - Only the Best! openSUSE - Works for you
and so (I just cite some to be short) doesn't state facts about openSUSE but opinions. I think a slogan should reflect something real about openSUSE,
What real you can be put in one line?
Let me try: "openSUSE is one of the largest opensource linux distributions with a lot of free programs and optimal ratio of new features versus stability", Using very little fonts it can be squeezed in one line, but who is going to take computer vocabulary to translate what it means?
like freedom, versatility, ease of use and so.
Every word when is not in the context can have few meanings, the problem is to find the sentence that gives meaning.
