VL Tagline: Choice of a...? (Have your say!)
« on: April 22, 2007, 11:37:50 pm »

The tagline "Choice of the Linux generation" seems too close to "choice of the GNU generation" and, sad to say, not as witty. How about "the choice is yours" or a terrible maths / physics pun like "We have magnitude and direction" ?

I think the tagline should be a good discussion..........how about "choice of a free generation"?
I'm open to suggestions as I'm not real pleased with that myself but something fresh would be welcome throw in your ideas........................ ;D

Well, "choice of a free generation" would pose essentially the same problem. "We have magnitude and direction" is the only thing witty I can think of right now, so I'll let others have a go at this now.

Using linear algebra and geometry would be interesting for future artwork, though. I draw like a troglodyte, so I can't really help here, unless it involves typesetting the maths or something similar.

VECTORLINUX:
Rocking your socks since 1996

Not sure about the year (?), and it's a little silly, but it's also:

1) Fun
2) Denotes speed/excitement
3) Pun-filled in terms of the sox media player

Keep sharing! :)

It's fast on old hardware, I can only guess it flys on the newer stuff.

It's not necessary to have the real year. Just use a figure that looks good and respectable, like '872 C.E.'

Edit: Nobody noticed the reference to King Harald 'Fairhair' I    :'(

I like the math pun idea. I don't think I can top "We Have Magnitude and Direction" slogan." It's the simplest possible pun on "vector" and a deceptively accurate description of the distribution. Nonetheless, I'm pretty shameless when it comes to math puns, so I'll throw a few ideas out there.  (As far as I'm concerned they're not especially good, but hopefully I'll inspire somebody else).

But how many people do you think would get it? I certainly didn't (don't). I don't think our distro wants to appeal just to math aficionados. To non-mathies, "We Have Magnitude and Direction" just seems odd.

I'd say forget the math puns.

I think 'magnitude and direction' could be understood by someone without linear algebra or physics experience. (Personally, I was just terrible in physics.) It wouldn't be funny, but it would still leave an impression.

The only other connotation I can think of for the word 'vector' is a disease-carrying parasite, but even that can be spun to advantage: "Vector: An infectiously fun Linux experience!"

"Fasten your seatbelts" sounds pretty good.

I'm not sure where I saw this other one though, but I think it was on a screenshot in the old forum (JohnB316 maybe?):

"Power up the warp drives!"
