Arch-related Slogans

Hello, I'm using conky/shuf to display random slogans from a file as part of my desktop "wallpaper."

For example
-------------------

A Lightweight and Flexible Linux Distribution

----

Any ideas for others?
I have some of the obvious ones (e.g. Keep It Simple, Stupid) but I'm having trouble being creative.

All apologies if there is a previously existing slogan thread somewhere around here.

Re: Arch-related Slogans

"Be part of Arch" from Sloganizer sounds great.


Arch Linux - rolling release distro, which users want to downgrade to the previous version

Re: Arch-related Slogans

Welcome /home
Zen and the art of bash scripting.
Simply sophisticated. Wickedly sharp.
A cut above the rest.
Elegantly executed.  Wickedly sharp.

...just a few of the slogans I've thrown on wallpapers in the past.

Yep: «Pure Arch. Pure Power.»
Or: «Arch - simplyfied.»

Sloganizer can give sometimes ideas smile

Re: Arch-related Slogans

You guys are great. I remember reading the 45% reference in a thread a while back.
I haven't been around long enough to understand the big deal with tacos though.
