Hi guys, i love ubuntu so much from the time i started using it. Im started using it as dual boot with windows, but now, i just noticed that it has become my primary OS. Next time, i'll be making it as my sole OS.

I wonder if Ubuntu could provide a sticker the same size with the windows logo sticker for CPUs and Laptops? i don't know if it is relevant. but would it be better if we will include it in the shipped CD? change the larger sticker to a smaller one with the UBUNTU logo. i just think it is cool. what do you think? im becoming a loyal fan of ubuntu and im proud to show that my PC has ubuntu in it. just my thoughts though. :) cheers!

Send them a SASE, and they will send you a set of four "Powered by Ubuntu" stickers, as well as four little stickers to obscure the "Windows" key on your keyboard. Both are very durable and, if carefully applied, look like the computer came with them from the factory. For best performance, clean the area where the sticker is to be applied with alcohol.

Im sure I got some stickers in with my 9.04 CD but not had any in recent distros so I assume they stopped packing CDs with them :(

P.S. Love the Kick-*** avatar! My missus got me the DVD for Christmas :D

I had been thinking about stickers too, although I was thinking DIY.
I made up a sticker sheet (http://ubuntuone.com/p/N4f/) ready for printing, just needs printable sticker paper.
If you cant get the stickers you are after, maybe try this method

nice one! this is already good. i just got a problem with the "windows vista dismissed" :) i think it would be better if without that.. besides, current version now is windows 7.

Hmmm would a Ubuntu logo tattoo on me look great or just sad? LOL

Ubuntu-ized Acer AA1 D150. The "powered by: ubuntu linux" sticker is aluminized, so it doesn't photograph well.

The CPU can get pretty hot. It's probably not a good idea to put a sticker on it. Plus, you'd only be able to see the sticker once you opened your computer, unless your case is transparent.

You may want to put any stickers on the computer's case, instead. Or maybe the keyboard.

The System76 stickers aren't that great.

The Windows key one is okay, but the "powered by Ubuntu" one will fade extremely quickly if you put in on the palmrest.

you can print those at just about any size, smaller is better quality.

the default printer settings will fit to page :p
