  • Donations decreased. From $4,000 in December they’re down to $2,500 in February.
  • February was a very busy month for the team. 3 stable releases were out.
  • Although the most important Distrowatch indicator is down (traffic share: 4.6%), the distribution started to get more coverage in the press and in the media.
  • Development started on Linux Mint 9.
  • March should see the releases of the Xfce and LXDE editions.

    Woot! Can’t wait for Mint 9!!!

  3. beefstu Says:

    Bit confused, “Donations decreased” by $1,500 but “income is up again, by 3% in February”, where is the rest coming from? The sponsors amount hasn’t changed much, is it just from Google search income?

  4. Imhoteps Says:

    If I`d be a multi-millionaire I`d send you @least one million, guys. Really!

  5. John Says:

    Brilliant work guys, This is the best Ubuntu based distro I know of. Take a great base and make it better. Cool!

  6. sassinak Says:

    Up and Up it goes. Darwin would be proud!

  7. Anber Says:

    I only recently started using this distro and it’s the best distro I have worked on ever! For 10 years I’ve been looking for a distro that could replace my windows. I love Linux and the idea of Linux, but don’t want to tweak and struggle with silly things each time I use my OS. Mint is the first OS that works as advertise.

    lol@imhoteps

    i gave $20 i hope thats enough. Donating was easy and painless only takes a few minutes or seconds btw. Hope to see more donations. I’m using linux Mint 8 right now. I use it alot more than Vista. I think it’s great. Definately fun to get into. I already have a few themes installed I like how customizable the system is. Still having trouble with some printer hardware. For linux Mint 9 I can’t wait until that comes out. Thanks for the cool OS Clem. It was a pleasure donating. :P
