Summary:

  • The inevitable has finally happen and the streak of “best consecutive months” is over, this month wasn’t as good as the previous one. But with such a fantastic month in December 09 and considering what’s happening now, things aren’t that bad at all.
  • The overall income is down 3% and so are most of our statistics. Everything is still pretty good though. There are clear indications that our user base has been growing a lot since November 09, the distribution is getting momentum and if it wasn’t for the huge numbers we got in December, January would have looked excellent.
  • The KDE and Fluxbox CE will be released in February, work has begun on the recently codenamed Linux Mint 9 “Isadora” and we should hear news about whether or not time is given, and how much of it, to the Debian CE project.
