Thread: openSUSE - a breath of fresh air!

  1. #1

    Smile openSUSE - a breath of fresh air!

    Alternate title: openSUSE stinks! (thought I'd best not use that one)

    Just went down my local Tesco here in the UK and stumbled across this little fellow:

    Attachment 619

    It has a suction pad underneath and costs about two quid. Alas, Geeko's tail is too stiff to bend around SUSE-style.

    Now even your car can show its support for the latest openSUSE release!

    Nice find, to bad we don't have any of those in the states.

    If they could get the SUSE logo on it somewhere, or text, then that would be really cool!

    No good for Ubuntu users. They would need one that shape-shifts every six months.

    The tail looks like one of those earthly toys.

    Wrong colour too. It would need to be Brown. Perhaps more like the steaming pile left behind as the SUSE gecko rises to power.

    Yes, the colour escaped me not, but I gave up on that as I couldn't square the image of a "steaming pile" together with the air freshener component. That would end up being "a dog" of a product (...) if only from a marketing viewpoint.

    Brown Play-dough. That way each iteration you can re-shape it appropriately.

    Nice try, but DIY doesn't quite fit Ubuntu's (slightly tarnished) "just works" image.
