The slogan for F13 is "Rock It."

Ground rules

Please read this.
Suggestions which don't follow these guidelines are far less likely to be considered.
  • The slogan should be short, 1-3 words.
  • The slogan should be an active sentence, like a command:
    • F8: Go higher
    • F9: Make waves
    • F10: Fire it up
    • F11: Reign
    • F12: Unite
  • The slogan should be positive, and reflect the idea that Fedora helps the user achieve something great.
  • The slogan should reflect one or more of the themes from the #Artwork created by the Artwork team for this release.
  • It's more important to fit the artwork theme than the four foundations shown in the #Keywords section below.
