I think I may have just came up with maybe the perfect catch phrase for the Raspberry Pi.

Raspberry Pi, take a byte.

What do you think? I don't even know why I was thinking of raspberry Pi at the time either, I was installing Mac OS X 10.2 on my ibook :/

Oh well, do you like it?

You know, all I ask in return for use of this is 200 million in unmarked bills.
But this could be the slogan, that seems like the right place for it.

So, should I take Eben's 'school Girlish Excitement' as a yes to the adoption of using this somewhere as something?

EDIT: Just realized what heading she was talking about!

i have come up with a new forum rule. only one other person (except for me of course. do as i say not as i do) is allowed to make a pun per day. anyone breaking said rule gets put on santa's naughty list and to the bottom of the list for sending out their R-Pi's when they are ready for shipping. :)

i just figured out the hype about that slogan, but i was reading it as a german, so the pronounciation was totaly off..
i read it like that: rasperry p(with an e instead of i) - take a byte.. damn pronounciation.. its a pie and not pee XD
stupid language issues.. but in german the pi is pronounced like.. well pee..

i love your slogan zac!!! best ever!!! a pie is a cake and i love cake/pie!!!! <(^-^<) <(^-^)> (>^-^)>

I'm not sure if you can call it "opensource", but I love your picture ! you just will have to change the picture of the board. :)
