Events:

Summary:

  • May was marked by the release of Linux Mint 9. There was a significant increase in traffic on the website (about 25%) and the user base grew by 6%. As with every release, we’re expecting the numbers to drop a little bit next month.
  • We received more donations than ever before. 202 people supported us this month, for a total of $5,117. Whether this was in appreciation of the latest release or in reaction to the poor results the project got in April, it’s really appreciated. It is often said that Linux Mint doesn’t benefit from corporate funding, but we’ve got such a strong community. There aren’t many projects like ours with that level of support from their community. This is really inspiring. Many thanks to everyone involved in helping us.
  • The overall income went up by 24%. May 2010 was the best month for the project since its creation in 2006.
  • June 2010 should see the releases of two additional editions: LXDE and KDE.

  1. Wow, the repartitioning stats must be spot on. Who would have thought Isadora was so good that it could go from 0% to 39% while losing 26% share! Actual deltas (from April Stats post) approx: I+39% and H-30%. Good to see the income is back up again and generally good reviews for Isadora too.

  2. that’s a lot of donations this month, well deserved.
    Grats to you guys, hope this continues to take off

  3. Congratulations for all the content! =]

    I’m a c++ programmer, from Brazil, and i chose Linux Mint to study and work.

    Well, thanks all for the great job.

  4. great job! when KDE comes out i may donate… to stop everything from going down in June 😉 but thats only if i can actually use my card ;|

  5. Linux Mint 9 is sooo nice!(I’m currently downloading LXDE.)

    Thanks for all your hard work, we deeply appreciate it..
    More power to you! 🙂

  7. Thanks for for your hard work!!!
    It’s incredibly easy to install Isadora on BOTH of my laptops. One is Dell Inspiron 600M (i386), and the other one is Acer Extensa 4420 (AMD64). Everything works out-of-the-box. By the way I used the standard versions for both laptops.
    Wish you prosper in the future!
    Again, thank you!

    Mike Lang
