This slogan just came to me and I thought I would throw it out there. I am not a PR person or a Graphic Designer (as you can tell by the image I whipped up in GIMP), but I really like this idea.

I thought it was simple, to the point and catchy (is that a word??). I guess it could be "Do U Ubuntu?" or something like that, but I like this.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

I really really hate it when people change you to u, but that's personal preference. I realize
"you ubuntu" doesn't have quite the same look though =P

Ubuntu: Take it as a threat, better yet, a promise.

Ubuntu goes under "Linux for Human Beings". Unfortunately, I hate that slogan with a passion. I'll see if I can come up with something better though..

Yes, "catchy" is a word.

This is a horrible example, but I only spent like 5 minutes on it. Combines the first image with the actual word "you."

If somebody knows the font that is used off the top of their heads, then I'll crank out a more polished version.

Very Good. Its a very interesting wordplay, since the pronunciation is similar to the real word, "Ubuntu." I'm sure theres a technical name for it; I'm sure one of the spelling Nazis will know exactly what I am talking about:popcorn:

You Ubuntu sounds like you're studdering or something

Yoo oo boon too

All these Ubuntu word plays are fun but messing with the corprate logo and name weakens the branding.

Look at the big UK and global brands. The only companies that corrupt/play with their logo are ones that want to seem fun and playfull like kids toys.

The question is, which one makes you want to use Ubuntu?
