Now my take on the slogans. At first: I think we need to be clear whom to address with the slogan. In my opinion we need to address developers first, make them use GNUstep.

At this point, it would probably be a good idea to separate all the ideas and discuss them individually

O.k. let's begin. I skimmed through all the messages to find the proposed slogans and put them together here in alphabetical order to discuss them and vote for them. If you have another great idea or if I missed something feel free to add it to the list:

GNUStep - integrate your thoughts

this doesn't explain what GNUstep is, it is to wishy washy to me

GNUstep - Cocoa opened

GNUstep - Cocoa revisited

both good, easy to remember, but possible trouble with apple

GNUstep - Differently Thunk.

but what is GNUstep then?

GNUstep - Mac free

this results probably in problems with Apple

GNUstep - Not your father's Cocoa!

GNUstep - The greatest API you've never heard of!

nice, I like the humor in it. But will a great API alone make developers consider GNUstep?

GNUstep - We ain't WindowMaker, Jack!

maybe to rude.

GNUstep - boost your (open source GUI) developement productvity

I think that one is too long

GNUstep - code differently

differently is not necessarily better. (Yes I came up with it but you convinced me)

GNUstep - code intelligently

better than my original proposal, second choice to me

GNUstep - code less, deploy everywhere

[X] my favorite, short and to the point. It lines out what we are (a framework/environment for development), it sums up the main advantages (code less, cross platform capability)

GNUstep - code smartly

same as code intelligently

GNUstep - everybodies Mac

do we deliver that already?

GNUstep - free Cocoa

GNUstep - free as in Cocoa

both can *possibly* bring us in trouble with apple

GNUstep - make your users smile today

nice and positive, but you still get no idea what GNUstep is about (WindowMaker - make your users smile today would also work for WindowMaker)

GNUstep - write once deploy everywhere

that one is also not bad but it misses to point out that GNUstep saves you a lot of time and code (which you don't need to write)

Put your best to the test. GNUStep does the rest.

I don't like rhymes. But that's just a personal taste.



I think it's important not just to add the slogan to the graphics of the website but also to the html title so it is visible at Google and the like.
