Subject Re: [DISCUSS] What's Our Battle Cry? CloudStack the Cloud that Just Works

Because it works. So do the other guys. This statement comes off as a bit delusional. It's
mostly passive, when we should be aggressive. It's like ford saying, cause it drives. Obviously.

Why not focus on why it's a better, faster, more scalable way to run your business. Zero to
hero in minutes.

>> Hello,
>> 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 message.
