Not the GWN, Release 2

Filed under
Gentoo
Humor

We're not in any way related to the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter (GWN) or as it is known now, the GMN. Although inverting the W to be a more grounded M is a radical step and gives the acronym a much more youthful and dynamic look we don't like it that much. An "O" would have made it look much rounder and mature. Also, adding a small "e" at the end would have made it look much more Web 2.0 and stuff. And who can claim that "GONe" is a bad acronym?

The Gentoo motto contest

In the past there have been many suggestions for a Gentoo motto. As far as we are aware there has never been an official one. So we are looking for some suggestions for an inofficial motto - last time's community winner seems to be "Because we can". Two candidates we found are "We suck less" and "Scratch YOUR itch (but not in front of me, you pervert)". We're going to ignore all suggestions sent in and proclaim a random winner in the next Not the GWN. Oh, and if you think "At least it's not Debian" is funny please become a hermit. It's not.
