  1. Husse, start putting a link to the donation page in each weekly newsletter. At the moment donations are pretty much invisible to most Mint users. We dont need to ram it down their throats but the link at least needs to be visible.

  2. Great article there Husse. Love reading your work.

    keep up the good work, i see a bright future for Linux Mint.
