cafe press "Official Licensed Slackware Store" genuine?

If this is the real deal then I shall buy this for my baby daughter. Hey, why not as her first birthday is coming up anyway.

My wife will probably have a WTF moment when she sees our daughter wearing it but that is just an added bonus.

I am even tempted to buy this myself and go full on Geek dad. I'm currently on parental leave and figure we'll look great walking around the shops together.

Yup, that's mine. Glad someone likes that logo.

Great, That is what I wanted to hear! And yeah, cool logo!

I had some issues with getting the order through (doesn't seem to work in Opera, plus don't think you can select Amazon payment when shipping to a non-US address even though it lets you try) but I got there in the end. This is Slackware T-Shirt number four for me (I went Cardinal this time as the other three are black and I need to have some variation) and the first for my daughter (I went with the obvious, 'pink' for her).

My wife will be over the moon!!! Well actually no she won't ... but she will have a giggle that I bought yet more Slackware stuff.

It would probably spawn another mega-thread like this one so I think the old logo is here to stay...but at least the flippy one is available on merchandise for those who like it.

Exactly. Hands off the old logo. I don't want change. I fear change. Old is safe; old is good

Any chance to get any of these items with the regular logo on them?

I kinda like the logo, but then I also like the old logo, too. I say there's room for both of them. As long as the OS in question retains it's awesome and stability, I'm good.

I'm not a dad. Wait...I'm not even married yet. But I'll say that's a super cute baby suit.

Regards.

Since the Slackware store has items with the official logo that we've invested in producing, I'd rather not compete with my own inventory. So no, not at this time.

Unfortunately, the same situation happened again after 5 years. I couldn't finish a transaction at CafePress
Five years ago, the reason was they were not shipping to Indonesia and this time, they couldn't authorize my payment. I have used PayPal and Credit Card and both failed.
This is the same credit card used to buy items in Slackware Store last year and they are valid....

Good choice! That kindergarten logo is most appropriate for childen's wear.


(Sorry, couldn't help it. Yes, I know, we all have our own opinions and every one has different taste, yada, yada, yada, but that is, without a doubt, the absolutely worst logo ever created for any product or service in the history of mankind. BTW, would love to be able to buy the same coffee mugs with the "real" Slackware logo).

Hyperbole much? It can't be worse than the logo for the "Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission".
