While from a graphic point of view it is interesting and I notice you 
used the correct font face, I can see two shortcomings:
- "think freely" is NOT the Fedora slogan, in fact we are trying to come 
with posters for the new concept: 4-F (freedom-friends-features-first);
- without doubt, cats rules and I own a cat myself (well, not sure "own" 
is the best term and who owns who, but I digress...) but I don't get the 
metaphor here, is that we should act like cats and consider ourselves 
with no master? Not sure that is a very good metaphor.
