Thanks to all of you for your great input for an openSUSE slogan.

So that everybody can participate to vote the best slogan, we created a wiki-voting page:
http://en.opensuse.org/Election:OpenSUSE_Slogan

Provided that there is nothing said against it, we pre-selected the 10 best slogan also based on your input. We will
facilitate the voting until next Friday, 27/04 and than reward the best slogan.

Again many thanks for your participation.

Best,
Sabine

Hi,

Within the framework of the new web design of *.opensuse.org, we are also discussing the mission statement for the
openSUSE project and we would love to receive your input.

A mission statement - a clear and succinct representation of openSUSE project, a so called "one-liner"
      e.g. * openSUSE - Built to fit!
             * openSUSE - Have a lot of fun!
             * openSUSE - Caffeine for your machine!
             * The openSUSE project - A real alternative!
             * openSUSE - It's a wild thing!
             * openSUSE - An unlimited alternative!
             * openSUSE - The adaptable and innovative solution!

It should be included/supported by a set of our values such as open, leading edge distribution, fits everywhere, best
of open source, innovative, user-friendly, comprehensive, etc.

We will select the best three mission statements for further discussion and finally reward the best input with a 50cm
stuffed Tux.

We are looking forward to your ideas.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry i'm late to this discussion, but thoughts during / after voting...

not bad but I would like to have seen something like

openSuSE - build it to suit your needs

there is nothing there that fills this void directly.

this would have given the point that with so many packages available
with openSuSE you can build your desktop / server / firewall / etc. to
suit what you want it to look and feel like, your not limited to a single
layout / not just limited to a small number of packages or desktops.
