New sticker for my laptop


So a few weeks ago, I realized that since I don't run windows, I shouldn't have a windows 7 sticker on my computer. I peeled it off but that left a gap and looked ugly. After a while I decided to order a Slackware sticker for it, because that's my OS. The problem is though, OEM stickers are not easy to get ahold of, let alone print stuff on. Long story short, I called a bunch of design firms in my area, and got a sticker made. Its been three weeks, and this morning, this beauty arrived:

I'm so happy right now

They did everything exactly how I ordered it, down to the foil OEM sticker backing. Its beautiful.

As usual, my 'remove all stickers' policy makes me the odd one out.

You must have literally a person that has commented on it in the real world!

I'm surprised the Slackware store doesn't sell them. They have case plates:

I sure is very nice. But give the Slovakian-language-only website I can imagine they are not selling world-wide. Too bad, I was almost ready to order a bunch Debian and GNU/Linux.

Cool.

I used to have a Slackware case plate on my old server what has long since gone to the boneyard.

I've ripped off any that mention That Other Operating System. Forget what it's called, now. Begins with W?
