On Windows machines Microsoft puts a metal/plastic sticker on it to identify what Microsoft OS is installed.

Here's an idea for someone, maybe you can make the same thing but have Ubuntu? That way I could remove the Microsoft one and replace it.

Good idea? Bad idea?

Will someone do the idea?

I've found one on gnome-look.org that was done by czd23:

I like it, except the "Linux" text has not necessarily to be there, because "ubuntu" speaks for it self ;)

That's slick! though I do agree, the Linux text could be taken out

Hey, at least you're diligent!

But you don't think it looks good? I like it myself. Just with that one suggestion

hmm... I like your avatar, but I don't think that, for a machine sticker, the official logo should be changed.

My boss had beveled case badges done up with our logo inside. I'll email him and ask what we paid for X badges. And different options, maybe the forum could sell them?

I have a "Designed for Windows 2000" sticker on my Suse box, and a Suse sticker on my Ubuntu box! My wifes Ubuntu laptop has a "Designed for WindowsXP" sticker on it. If I could get stickers I would replace them all! For now I will just remove them before people think I am a bit strange... too late methinks. :)

using linux is more than enough to be weird :wink:

I'm still in developement of my "Ubuntu Revolution" silicon bracelets. If anyone is interested in purchasing them, they are 3$ a piece. (USD). This covers the expense for the bracelet and also the remaining value will be donated to Ubuntu. PM me if interested.

T-shirts, good promotional item. Maybe I can get to use the Ubuntu logo on a t-shirt when we get to put designs on shirts in our TLE class. But can I? Don't know much about these laws.

The machine sticker is a good idea, also for promotion. When people look at your laptop and will see the sticker and ask, "WTH IS THAT?!?" :-P

Too bad they don't take PayPal. I was going to buy a Linux Inside sticker.

Thanks for posting the link. I'll check it out.

I'll also make sure to jump in the ol' time machine and not make that Paypal remark.

Sweet! I'm gonna get one of the ones off ebay unless someone here comes up with something similar / better (would rather the (small) amount of money went to the ubuntu community).

Thats tight, I think I'll buy one for my shuttle case linux box. You know were one could go for a hat with the ubuntu logo on it. I had a anime logo hat, but because I live at the beach you cant wair a hat for more then a few months w/o it getting all nasty sweat like :?
