I really like the slogan "GNOME. My desktop of choice." Really
excellent. I like the other "Who says..." one less - not sure
why, it just doesn't sound right (the first thing I thought after

Speaking of laying our hands on stuff - could we start collecting

sugar daddies for when we want someone to cover printing costs
and the like :)

ruin a poster.
