Summary:

* July 2009 was the (5th consecutive) best month ever since the creation of Linux Mint.
* The overall income is up 5%.
* Our user base is the second largest in the desktop Linux market.
* The community support is outstanding: 100 people donated last month for a total of $2984 and our sponsors raised $465.
* A lot of work was done on the upcoming Linux Mint 8 ‘Helena’ and on the releases of the community editions. Launchpad and Github were adopted and will have a positive impact on our efficiency. The real challenge is still ahead as Linux Mint lost its novelty factor within the Linux community and hasn’t managed to catch the attention of the media in order to compete with widespread commercial operating systems such as Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS.
