I think therefore I am - some Greek guy said that first, but the thought stands out five thousand years later! I will continue to think up ideas (like the visual Watermark) for a central memembership idea, it just takes longer as I have many pokers in the fire of my mind! ;-)
Polo shirts available here http://www.hellotux.com/Category_Linux_Mint.php
This idea is,at least partly,"Implemented"
I bought a couple of Polo-shirts with the Linux Mint logo embroidered on it - it wears well and is more substantial than the T-shirts sold By the Ubuntu Store. There's also a firm that sells Linux Mint Stickers but at 45p plus post from Italy that's got to be expensive for one sticker! I subscribe to Linux Format which always has good write-ups about Linux Mint and sometimes they send a sheet of transfers (which include Linux Mint Stickers) for free and that's a plus for me since my Microsoft seal on my PC is now covered up by a Linux Mint sticker :-D ! I have a spare sticker which I will put on my New Laptop when I get it next month - Yay! :-) Linuxfanatik
I also suggest the forums since it has a larger following
Thats my thinking also Linuxfanatik. Especially now when Apple is pushing their propreitory and forever more restrictive software on even younger kids. You know the other day I heard that some pre schools are giving their kids i-pads to do things. There is no sense of teaching them anything then, they will grow up asuming software companies will give them the instant fix they want, with no need to learn anything.
Psyckers niecewould be an investment for Linux mint. I started computing with Unix, then Suse 6.1, then 8.2 professional - but my life was half over when I found Ubuntu - children have a head-start on us old 'uns and can maybe lead the world back towards the open systems that are now taking hold. Linuxfanatik
I am thinking maybe a Linux Mint onesie for my new niece. Start them young I say, plus it will go well with her plush Tux toy.
Personal opinions should be posted on the forums
