It always comes down to the t-shirts doesn’t it? Maybe something like this?

Great discussion Mark.

I want a T-Shirt as well. My vote, the new slogan should be:  #cloudstackworks

It's great because we can use it with lots of tags:

#cloudstackworks for gaming (when we talk about Disney or Zynga's big CloudStack clouds)
#cloudsatckworks in China (when we talk about the new docs)
#cloudstackworks with PaaS (when we talk about a new company joining the community)
#cloudstackworks in Budapest (when we announce the next summit).

It doesn't go too far to attack anyone, but focuses on all of the successful deployments that
are out there.  Almost like a virtual high five.

Best Regards,

Mark, this is a good theme we can build on, and talk to both the capabilities as well as the
market validation of Apache CloudStack e.g.

Apache CloudStack: The Cloud that just Works

...with all your apps
...with all your infrastructure
...with just an admin

...with enterprises
...with service providers Government Education Europe Japan

Today I was speaking with some of our folks at Citrix on how we position Apache CloudStack.
As we talk about our products we also try to paint ACS as a strong foundation for building
a cloud in a variety of ways but in the interest of being succinct and consistent across our
project I think it would be good to have our standard battle cry or descriptor to help reinforce
why you should be considering ACS and help all the supporters of the project reinforce our
value. We have gravitated towards:

Apache CloudStack: The Cloud that Just Works

Based on the fact that you can get it up and running quickly and become productive in a very
short time. Does anyone have other ways they describe ACS?  What do you think about the proposed
