Actually, I was getting at the lack of articles/prepositions/whatever you call them in Latin, due to the word endings.

And last post you meant word order. Ok. I think you mean pronouns, btw, since there aren't any missing prepositions or articles.

I'm thinking a quote from "Lenny" Bruce ;-)

How about:

"If you can take the hot lead enema, then you can cast the first stone."

I think the ideal slogan for Lenny would have been: "The Universal Operating System. When Freedom and Quality matters". Since that slogan wasn't available, I chose "The Universal Operating System".

The current results, after 2702 votes, are:

The Spiral Strikes Back! -- 13% (364)
The Universal Operating System -- 21% (574)
When code matters more than commercials -- 11% (291)
Free never looked so good -- 10% (273)
The universal operating system never looked so good! -- 2% (52)
We build it the right way -- 6% (162)
Wanna see new horizons? -- 4% (113)
See Freedom Work -- 13% (346)
One operating system. Infinite Freedom -- 20% (527)

I noticed that the Linux Outlaws podcast on November 15, 2008 appears to make fun of this poll by suggesting the slogan "Lick My Lenny". ( "Linux Outlaws"??? Does the name reflect their agreement with the claim that the Linux kernel violates 235 of Microsoft's patents? :P ) I kind of agree that not all the slogan suggestions are really that great.

Still, these kinds of polls are a nice way to call for community participation. A bit of advertising doesn't hurt Debian, but I think the advertising should concentrate on Debian's actual strengths: freedom and quality.

I voted for "The Spiral Strikes Back". My second choice was "One Operating System. Infinite Freedom". As of a few minutes ago, the "...Infinite Freedom" slogan is in the lead by a little over 100 votes.

I voted for the universal operating system cos it is.

But I'd have preferred something like:

Debian Lenny - Better Late Than Never. (English)

Debian Lenny - Tempus Fugit. (Latin)

Debian Lenny - Time Flies But X11 Crashes. (Geek)

Debian Lenny - Where The Bloody Hell Have You Been? (Australian)

(all jokes gratefully received from the rest home and hospice for old jokes)

I really like the last one: One operating system. Infinite Freedom.

I voted for "One operating system. Infinite Freedom"

But I have to admit if
"Debian Lenny - Better Late Than Never."
was an option I would have voted for it. Or something along the lines of
"It'll be ready when it's ready" <-------- This would be a good slogan for whatever version is currently in testing,hum...... I love my ideas.

"All operating systems suck. This one just sucks less." - Debian

I always liked:
There are two kinds of users: those who use Debian and those who will.

But that's more of a slogan for Debian. Or an email signature maybe. And then I think of Ubuntu as "using Debian" since it is mostly Debian.
