FWIW, I noticed that when I talk about Fedora and answer the oh-so-often
Q "Why should I install Fedora and not X or Y?" my first three points
are about a) the amount of work being done and the potential we have in
1, 5, 10 years time, b) the obsession with freedom, and c) the openness:
open discussions, democratic leadership and upstream mantra.

Which, come to think of it, are pretty good match to the "infinity,
freedom, voice" slogan. So, at least in my mind, these 3 words purely
identify Fedora from all other distributions.

"Freedom is a feature" is cool and maybe more impressive and memorable,
so we could use it as well in marketing. I believe though we should
really promote the current one *much* more than we currently do because
it captures what and why we are right to the bone.
