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 (must read), , , , .
underestimate task. Publicity agencies likely have highly paid
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
Until now, IMHO, one of the most interesting slogans sent is a
"Expand your horizons".
