View Full Version : Will people think I'm a nerd if I wear an Ubuntu shirt in public?

I love my Ubuntu swag, I have a stuffed tux plush and some Ubuntu stickers right now. Been thinking about getting some more merchandise, like maybe an Ubuntu mouse pad or an Ubuntu shirt? My biggest concern is if I were to wear an Ubuntu shirt in public, would people label me as a nerd? I have low self-esteem and don't like being labeled. :(

I wouldn't be caught dead in a Mac shirt or a Windows shirt, my friends would all laugh at me and no girls would talk to me if I did that. What makes an Ubuntu shirt any different from those?

Edit: Actually probably not, most people will have no idea what it is and will probably just say that it looks like a cool logo (except for those who recognize it for what it is and then you will have mutual nerd respect which is always awesome :D). As long as you're happy with yourself that's all that matters.

Ubuntu being a bit more obscure, I'd say you could prolly get away with it easily. The only people whowould be able to call you out on it would be other nerds who know what it is.

I agree with this, most people wouldn't recognize the Ubuntu logo, they'd just think it was another logo.

I actually love it when people call me a nerd or a geek :) That just shows that someone took the time to notice that I am one.

My favorite pair of jeans have Ubuntu logos on them. The only people who recognize the logo are people into open source software. Everyone else just thinks it's a cool design.

Trust me, if a person knows enough about Ubuntu to know that you're a nerd for wearing the shirt, they're a nerd too, but a closet nerd which is worse. Does that make sense?

I like being labeled a geek, but not based on the OS I use, I try to get a wide exposure. I like Ubuntu right now though, it's all I use. I plan to install Arch and Ubuntu on a new desktop I will be getting, though.

Anyways, I think most people won't recognize an Ubuntu shirt, the ones that do, are either gonna think you're a noob or that you're cool. Just a wild guess.

Simple answer: nothing.

If your friends laugh at you for wearing an Ubuntu shirt then are they really your friends? I think not.
Girls who won't talk to you because of your clothing probably aren't worth talking to anyway.

Wear what you want, not what others dictate to you.
Don't be steered too much by the opinions of those whose opinions shouldn't matter.
Be yourself, make your own decisions, do your own thing, if that's an Ubuntu shirt, wear it because you want to.

I have the Hardy Heron polo shirt, it's very comfortable. I wear it to the gym. I don't use Ubuntu, but I will admit of the Linux distros out there, Ubuntu has the best shirts. They don't have that cafe express low quality feel unlike most distros t-shirts.

Regardless, I have never had a bad experience wearing Linux t-shirts, I have been stopped a few times by fellow users which generally leads to interesting conversations.

Be yourself, it's the only person you can be - if that person wears a Ubuntu shirt so be it, all I can say is rock on.

I have an Ubuntu T-Shirt and Hoody. I wear them all the time, sometimes I wear them together, sometimes I don't. The only bloke ever to comment, was a noob that just wanted to know about Ubuntu. I find that the T-Shirt is most useful in shops like PC World. It has 'Linux for Human Beings' in big letters on the back and it tends to scare the staff off a bit.:D

As for making you less popular with the Ladies, it is a known fact that chicks like geeks. Also, Linux users are 100% more sexy than a Windows Vista user.

Most likely not, as most people don't have a clue what Ubuntu is.

They will just think it's some kind of clothing brand.

If it however says "linux for human beings", you might get some weird looks.

A lot more people have a least heard of linux, and yes most will think it's nerdy.

And you have to admit, wearing Linux clothing makes you a geek/nerd.

It's up to you if you think that's bad or good.

If you can't handle a little good-natured mocking from your friends, you need to loosen up. If your friends actually care about a shirt you wear, you need new friends. If you have no friends, you don't need to worry about being labeled, because nobody will care.

In general, strangers don't and probably never will care about you unless you put yourself out there. The shirt you wear is irrelevant.

Trust me when you get older... I'm assuming you're young, high school maybe?... All of the things you think make you a nerd will win you nothing but praise. As long as you learn to embrace you... cool, ladies, and unquestionable self esteem will be intimately linked to your name. Look at it this way.. no one will ever like you if you're never YOU.

P.S. I saw this really hot chick on the way to a gallery opening and low and behold she whipped out a Linux magazine. The bus was a crowded mess but I couldn't pass up the chance to chat up a super sexy linux geek. There's tons of attractive women in Chicago, but they don't have super cow powers like this girl. Point is... she stood out from all the other gorgeous women because of her nerdy sensibilities.. To me anyway

Q:Will people think I'm a nerd if I wear an Ubuntu shirt in public?

A: No.
- Most people have no clue what Ubuntu is or what it does.

Unfortunately Ubuntu Linux is strictly geek-oriented platform and it will stay obscure well into foreseeable future, imo.

So keep a low-profile if you wanna get laid, lol.

He rips on me because my last name happens to be a music file type.

So you have Scottish ancestry (http://www.surnamedb.com/surname.aspx?name=Ogg)?

You'll need to get a kilt to wear with your Ubuntu shirt, nothing stimulates womens' curiosity quite like the kilt, it is the ultimate babe magnet.

Just think, this could be you.... (http://kiltrental.com/Prom%20Black%20Watch%20kilt.jpg)

I don't think anybody will think you are a nerd if you wear an ubuntu shirt. Most people wouldn't even recognoze the logo.

On a side note: I too have scottish roots. :)

The Ubuntu logo is, to the uninitiated, what the Pepsi logo is to a backward tribe in the middle of some jungle.

Outside of South Africa, the word Ubuntu is associated with a Linux distro (at least, to those who know what Linux is).

Inside South Africa, the relationship is vastly different.

This link provides a meaning to the origins of the word "UBUNTU" and why the ethos of the distro is as it is.

The logo of Ubuntu Linux represents that ethos perfectly. However, in South Africa, those who are not Linux lovers will see no meaning to the logo.

So you're basically "preaching to the converted".

As for myself, show me where I can get Ubuntu stuff.

The question is: Is being labeled a nerd a bad thing? Answer: Yes.

Wear it in public, people who don't know will not care, and people who do will be awed at your support of Ubuntu
