Re: Call for opinions: slogan for the Lenny release ?

In my opinion slogan should "brag" more, eg:

Unstoppable.  Ultra-stable Linux.

Extraordinary power. Invincible stability.

Beyond perfect.

Like a penguin.   \\play on "Like a rock" Ford/Chevy? ad

    Some more general guidance to help selecting a good slogan for Lenny:
    6- Original content. Do not use copyrighted material from companies
    without permission. Even with permission, it is not good.
    7- Do not refer other companies or entities.
    8- Write in positive, or imperative, or affirmative mode. Need
    9- Comparisons only against all others, not specific ones. Even so, it
    is dangerous and need in-line proof to get consideration, and then
    exceed size limit.
    10 - Read some basic guidance [4](must read), [1], [2], [3], [0].
    Do not
    underestimate task. Publicity agencies likely have highly paid
    gurus to
    this task.
    11- Keep It Simple to Stick.

    Please, for this slogan subject, use the suitable mailing list
    debian-publicity, used by the marketing and publicity interested
    in Debian.

    Until now, IMHO, one of the most interesting slogans sent is a
    merge of
    2 previous:
    "Expand your horizons".
