Here is a reference. I will refrain to link to to the naughtylogos on jonhs dot net though.

...wow, from baby jammies to naughties in no time. Slackware really is one-for-all.

The rubber suits and steak sauce are on me.

cheers,

A little bit, maybe, but not much.

The new American Airlines livery runs a close second place.

What about a coffee mug with the official logo? I'll buy one with the new one but would prefer the old one. I need a backup for my Bill the Cat mug and it might as well be a Slackware one.

I'd love to know how many people bought Slack thongs.

I quite like the new logo. It's different, though, that's for sure! Pat: think you can slap that logo on a traveler's mug so I can slack while on the bus?

Is there a link to, http://www.cafepress.com/volkerdi from the slackware.com site? Couldn't find it.

As opposed to the just one "store" under the "Get Slack" heading, perhaps putting links to both "stores" in the left panel of the main page of the slackware.com site might boost sales?
Just a thought.

+1 to this.
I just found the site because a Willy Post http://slackblogs.blogspot.com/2013/...are-store.html and there are a lot of things that now I want to buy that are not in the "official store".

After all this time, I can't believe people are still complaining about the 'flippy' logo!

Personally, I love it and I think some people need to grow a sense of slack.

I was a bit disappointed when PV caved in to public pressure and reverted to the old logo. What's the old saying? "F__k 'em if they can't take a joke."

Unfortunately, our network access at work has been limited due to a large data transfer taking place, so I can't access the CafePress website. But I'll certainly be checking it out tonight from home.

Sheesh....

Well.... everyone is entitled to their opinion...

You need to be able to identify the "product" if you want to promote it... unless, of course, one is of the elitist frame of mind, that is, exclusionary to the point one has to wonder, why bother having a logo at all?

Only a Slackware user would have any idea this is suppose to say, Slackware.

You hate it, but think we should have a link to the cafepress page from the main site to promote it better? Some opinions are stranger than others, I guess.

I'm not sure why I'm bothering to debate a topic that was settled (I thought in your favor) long ago, but there are many recognizable logos that do not say the name of the product at all. You may not like it, but it _is_ easily identifiable.

Had to get in another "Slackwars" dig, huh?

Also, here's the properly rendered version:

Now give it up or I'll use ol' flippy on the Slackware 14.1 DVD.

Like it or not, "business is business," as they say, i.e., my heart is in the right place. As you like it, and have invested in it (inventory), I was suggesting you make the "store" easier to find in the hope of increasing your sales.

...so, according to conspiracy.slackware.onion, pv and wiz have colluded to change the logo, and 14.1 will be out in a few...

just sayin'

I wish I lived next door to Cwizardone.

I'd paint the flippy logo on the side of my house (in 6 foot lettering) just to drive him bonkers.

Hey Pat, when are you going to put it on some USB sticks?

I've changed my mind about the ambigram/flippy logo. I like so much now, I'm using it as my wallpaper ( ):
