Revision as of 22:06, 16 November 2007

Whilst GNUstep has no official slogan so far, the potential benefit of having one was discussed and many drafts were proposed on the mailing lists recently (around 2nd November week 2007). This is the attempt of summing them up together with some pros and cons which were noted.

The con/pro comments are given in headwords. It must be kept in mind that the pros and cons are weighted rather differently by the individual discussion participants. Proposals without comment were more or less ignored so far.

Please fill in more. This is just a beginning.

General considerations

Headwordwise:

  • prescriptiveness: (i.e. mention: code, development, API, OpenStep ...)
    Some say -- with regard to the low publicity -- a slogan should give a short description of what GNUstep is
    Others say, it should leave space for imagination.
  • mentioning Cocoa/NeXT/Apple/Mac:
    Some say Cocoa should be mentioned to give a better idea of what GNUstep is like, and/or to use Apple's publicity
    Others say that could lead to legal problems with Apple, exspecially when claiming superiority. Competing boldly with Apple could also hurt credibility.
  • mentioning advantages (i.e. productivity, portability ...)
