Revision as of 16:21, 24 March 2009

This is a free form page to work on slogan ideas. Please add ideas to the table below. As we solidify the ideas and work towards the slogan, the page which change to reflect that.

Ground rules

  • The slogan should be short.
  • The slogan should be an active sentence, like a command. ("Make waves. Go higher. Fire it up.")
  • The slogan should reflect one or more of the thematic elements created by the Artwork team for this release. Check out the art here.
  • The slogan should be positive, and reflect the idea that Fedora helps the user achieve something great.


Slogan Submitter Notes or reasoning
"Move mountains." Paul W. Frields Mountains appear in the theme. To move mountains is to do something powerful and great. This slogan is here to provide an example, if nothing else.
"Fedora - Friends of Freedom or alternative - Freedom to Innovate" Rahul Sundaram "Greeks are known for their unique culture but also their work as a team. We Fedora folks are also community oriented and freedom combined. The first slogin emphasizes the community aspect a bit more. The second slogan is because of the enormous amount of new features in Fedora
"Freedom, come and take it." Pierros Papadeas "Come and take them" is a famous spartan saying, combined with one of the 4F. Also "Come and take it" should be considered as an viable alternative.
"Picture perfect." Ian Weller haha you think I have reason. ;) Mostly inspired just from the F11 artwork that's being worked on.
"Freedom and Power" Ben Lambrechts Maybe it is better the other way: Power and freedom.
"Freedom Akademia" Ewan Luca Plato's Akademia was a place for informal meetings of free thinkers witch became, by the power of knowledge, a well known and respected institution. Now, an academy holds the pinnacle of achievement in the respective field(s). If the slogan need a verb could be "Grow with Freedom Akademia", "Succeed in Freedom Akademia", "Get endowed by ...", "Empower yourself in ..." - many of the attendants of Plato's Akademia went on to became politicians and leaders using skills and tools acquired there (rethorics, logic, etc)
"Come get some" moixs Ok, this is a reference to Duke Nukem 3D, could be from the movie 300 too. This could also mean come get some Fedora DVDs, this tasty software :)
"All Paths lead to Fedora" Binod Chandran Modified from "All Roads lead to Rome".Changed "roads" to "paths" to relate with web paths
"A Tradition of Freedom" alternate: "Keep the tradition of Freedom" (or "a tradition") Nicu Buculei We are going with some traditional Ancient Greek cultural symbols, Greece was known for its democratic/freedom roots, we have at Fedora a tradition of Freedom.
"Goes to 11" / "Turn it up to 11." Michael DeHaan Spinal Tap. Enough said. Pretend it is about our Feature Knob. We should make a nice graphic for this with the knob of a Marshall-esque amplifier turned to 11 with a Fedora logo on it. (Provided the call to action version. -- PWF)
"Fedora 11 : Freedom from heaven." Kostas Antonakoglou Well, eleven rhymes with heaven. Also, it is inspired from the theme (green field etc). My suggestion is an example, it could be expressed in many ways...
"Freedom continues." Michelle Thompson Freedom continues over time (comparing ancient times to now), and freedom is one of the key words, and I can imagine that the artwork symbolizes both freedom (open spaces, etc.) and continues (the mountains, sky, etc. don't just end after the artwork; they themselves continue). BONUS possibility for some visual play (depending on the font / image used):
   F   1      1 
   Freedom Continues  
"Fedora 11 : A Code of Freedom." Jose Damian Garrido Some words of Leonidas in the movie, with some modification :)
"Fedora 11 : Function follows Freedom." Yannik Stadelmaier According to the phrase "form follows function".
"Fedora 11 : Join the free nation." Edney Matias From the 300...modified indeed.
"Fedora 11 : Spread it." Mostafa Daneshvar The verb 'spread' can be used with our Foundations meaningfully


Populate the keywords and themes that we want to work with below.


  • The four foundations
    • Features

  • If the Greek temple stays in the background, note that it provides some thematic element:

    • Philosophers, great thinkers
    • Platonic forms? Socratic dialogue? Euclidean geometry?
  • Landscape
    • Mountains
    • Wide open sky
