That is why for the stickers we chose to take the slogan:

 	CentOS: Enterprise Linux for the people

So that at least people know that it is an Enterprise Linux and they are 
included as the target market :) (besides in South America you have 
strong people movements)

What I like on a poster is to give away the important characteristics of 
an Enterprise Linux. There are ofcourse many, and some are more 
interesting to some people than others.

In my presentations I always talk about:

     secure, stable, predictable and reproducable

If we look at what Enterprise Linux means, an important one is that 
security updates are low-risk and available as soon as they are ready and 
tested. As a result the deliverables are stable and systems running an 
Enterprise Linux are predictable in behaviour.

Thanks to the fact that the environment does not change too often, 
experiences and problems are reproducable on other systems.

So to me the poster and future promotional material should indicate that 
CentOS is an Enterprise Linux, and it should include those 4 important 

What do other people think ?
