No way!

Larry the cow is ok, but when I think of Gentoo, I think of the 'G', not larry the cow.

How much expected profit would a product need to have before it becomes viable to manufacture.

for example, how many shirts would somebody need to sell before they started making a profit?


Doesnt that depend entirely on the cost of production?

I would never wear a shirt with that huge purple "G" on it. Maybe a smaller one on the shirt pocket or something, but not like they have in the store.

Yes, I agree I would probably rather have a Larry the Cow T-Shirt - But not because it originates from Gentoo, just because it looks cool. I still think though, that for Gentoo, the weird 'G' is a far more ideal logo.

I say make a shirt with gentoo spelled with the purple "G" (similar to gentoo forums *look up*)
and then put Larry the Cow on the back (maybe with some catch phrase "If it mooves emerge it" or something)

just an idea.

No way! You cant cram that much on a T-Shirt. You cant put anything on the back either. A logo saying "Gentoo", perhaps spelled as it is with the 'G' logo as the 'g' in the center would be ideal. Another idea would be the 'G' logo small in the top corner of the T-Shirt would also be good.

For Larry the cow T-Shirts, you could just have Larry in the center (fairly small), with "Gentoo Linux" (or just "Gentoo") written underneath. Or you could perhaps have a small larry the cow, or just his face in the top corner.

Now we're talkin':wink:

I still like the idea of small gentoo text on the front and a big larry the cow on back.

But I see where you are going with your idea.

I always thought cows would make a perfect windows mascot. You know it's there eating all the resources and just being a big bloated cow. It doesn't really do anything and just stands there. Kind of sounds perfect like Windows if you ask me :lol:

Plus that green grass hill on Winblows XP looks like it's missing some cows on it.

I want a larry the cow shirt with him smoking a joint and sipping back a forty...from talking to people I know that's what more than half of us do in front of the computer anyway.

Gentoo's symbol should be Nikola Tesla :D To give him some credit for his genius, also would make Gentoo look wise, and perhaps we'll get some Tesla folks to try it :lol:

http://hep.ucsb.edu/people/hnn/tesla.jpg

He invented A/C which we use to power our computers. Not to mention thought of satelites and the television before they were invented. He invented means of tranmissing energy wirelessly. Also invented the radio. The list goes on and on.

That should be the Gentoo logo. I would petition for a shirt with that on it. The purple G and Larry the Cow suck as mascosts but the G looks cool in fbsplash at least.

I like this particular version of the Linux mascot as well. I even took the trouble to find a high-res version and restore it to the best of my ability (it was in GIF format originally, quite butchered):

I was speaking of a different gensplash theme.

Although the 2005.0 theme is the best of all.

right on. The ubuntu logo is kinda weird, but i have to admit that it is more inspired than the "g". I am all for larry the cow though.

You have no idea how depressed I was several years ago when I discovered Gentoo...the answer to all of my anal-retentive prayers. I finally found a distro that allowed me to compile individual packages from source, and be in complete control of which packages I used! Oh it was a wonderful day. That is, until I met Larry.

See, I have this unexplainable hatred for cows. And I'm sorry to those in the forum(s) that may make a living from selling dairy products, but milk and the concept of drinking another mammals milk sickens me. ~*sigh*~ But, I have accepted Larry as a self-hating cow. A cow that was born to the wrong herd. Perhaps, in another life, Larry will be a freedom-loving biker? :wink:

I wish I was kidding about the cow think

Holy cow, I love the "g".
I don't think I would have even looked into Gentoo at all if it wasn't for the "g". Nobody ever said anything about Gentoo; I had no idea what it was. But then I saw the "g" - the most attractive logo I have seen, so I clicked on it... then read about Gentoo, got interested, and now I'm here.

There should still be a Larry shirt though.
Hoho, I just realized I said "holy cow".

I like that. Larry confused and lost. Always looking for something more, something better. and then he finds gentoo and finds his place.
