CodeWeavers Tagline Contest

So we've been thinking here at the CodeWeavers ranch that we need a good tagline to summarize what we do in a 8 words or less. Something as unforgettable as Milk's "Got Milk?" Or as timeless as Nike's "Just Do It!" Or as awesome as Timex, "Takes a licking and keeps on ticking." Sure, we could do it ourselves, but we would rather open it up to our loyal customers and fans and reward them with an 8 GB iPod touch. Enter as many taglines as you wish by filling out the form below or mailing us your submission to 700 Raymond Ave. Suite 120, St. Paul, MN 55114.. Contest runs from July 1, 2011 through July 22, 2011.
