Hi Otto,

> I created a phrase in the Facebok of the Mageia that symbolizes the

> distro like a saying. Generally, companies have saying or mottos like
> this: “satisfaction guaranteed or money back”. It’s a phrase that
> it’s the company meaning in few words.The Merrian Webster’ dictionary
> tranlates the motto as the following meaning: a sentence, phrase, or
> word inscribed on something as appropriate to or indicative of its
> character or use. The prase, motto or saying to the Mageia is the
> following:
> *“Mageia is the present and the future.”* The users at the facebook
> liked this motto. It means Mageia is the present because of its
> quality and stability for the reason Mageia is at the top of
> distrowatch (at 7th. Position now). The other distos at start of
> mageia didn’t believe it.They desdained Mageia. The future be cause
> Mageia is a community, an organization and came to stay with us and
> offer the best in the future.Thus, if you choose it, It could be
> included for the Mageia 3 as a signal.It’s just a suggestion. I hope
> you get me.

Thanks for this!

Have you asked the folks on the mageia-discuss list how they like it?
That's where a lot of the community hangs out; you could also ask on
IRC and the forums.

If you get a lot of positive feedback within the community, then we can
put it to the Council for approval as a slogan.

We'll all look forward to hearing how you get on!
