News and summary:

  • I would like to apologize to all the people who donate to and sponsor Linux Mint for the time it took us to publish these stats. We’re extremely grateful for the empowerment you give us. No matter how hard things get, how little time we have and how ambitious our projects are, we know we’ve got your support and so we don’t need to worry about commercial aspects and we can fully focus on one thing and one thing only: making Linux Mint better. I would like to thank those who make this possible, our primary sponsor Blue Systems, but also companies which actively back us such as DuckDuckGo, Opera, Yahoo, CompuLab, R1Soft, Milton Security Group, ThinkPenguin… and so many others. I’d like to thank also, all the donors and sponsors whose contributions add up to what is a fantastic financial support for our project. We’re aware of the fact that there are very few projects on the Internet which benefit from such a generous and supporting community, and we feel extremely privileged by this. Thank you all for helping us!
  • LMDE was released and it was the first release to feature a stable version of MATE and of course the brand new Cinnamon. We’re extremely proud of this release and for Linux Mint 13 we want to do even better. With both MATE and Cinnamon getting their own dedicated editions, we’ll be able to integrate each of these desktops even further within the operating system. We’ve also heard your opinion, via the poll, and we acknowledge the fact that the most popular environments within our community are Cinnamon, MATE, Xfce and KDE. Going forward, we’ll focus primarily on these desktops.
