    1. Linux Mint is a fantastic distibution, and many have obviously noticed because Mint is currently #1 at distrowatch with 7 day span.
      Keep up the great work everybody involved!!! 🙂

    2. By far the best distro available. This is the reason your numbers are going through the roof. My company will make a donation next month to your cause. Ubuntu us a wonderful O/S; linuxmint takes it even further!

    3. You deserve even more!
      I’m one of the new users. Congratulations and thank you for the great linux experience!

    4. Congratulations. The thing that stands out to me is how few people use the LTS, I would have thought it would be a larger percentage.
      I would also think that the quality of Gloria will help grow the base, I have never been happier with a Mint release.

    5. I’ve tried (twice) to make a donation, but for some strange reason Paypal wouldn’t accept my card. The card is fine and I’ve used it elsewhere without any problems. Maybe it’s because my mailing address is in one country, but I live overseas and my DNS is different? Is there alternative way to Paypal for donations? Perhaps the Mint Team could add this to the donations page in the future.

      As for Mint 7, it’s wonderful and the best release yet. Keep up the good work.

    6. I’m a Linux convert and I made Mint as my distro of choice. Good work on Gloria, hope the KDE version will be released soon.

    7. just checked the distrowatch “page hit rankings”
