Infinite freedom isn't decided as the slogan, but the general consensus
is that the logo is loved. Concentrate on logo feedback today. Color can
be fixed later (like Legacy or something)

Is the 'f' too subtle? Do we need a name?
I think the f is far too subtle. The shirt design in particular will
confuse people. It needs to come with the name wherever possible.


Tie it up infinitely with the slogan "Infinite Freedom" would fix that? ;-)

I dare you to use that slogan in front of an OpenBSD developer :)

More seriously, I think that making "free" or "open" the key word has
potential issues, because although they are important they aren't
distinctive attributes of Fedora - other groups have claims on them, and
attach differing meanings. Arguably they have become buzzwords, outside
of the communities involved.

Three different well-known systems (one is not Linux-based):

"a free operating system for your computer"

"a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from open
source software"

"free, secure, and highly portable open source operating system"

The idea of "doing the right thing" has come up recently, and perhaps
that might be another start point - it encompasses licensing, technical
aspects and community.


Yes. I used that as a slogan in the overview page and it has now been copied over to the front page too
