Summary:

* December 2009 was the (10th consecutive) best month ever since the creation of Linux Mint.
* The overall income was up 12%.
* Our user base is the second largest in the desktop Linux market.
* The community support was higher than ever seen before: 155 people giving a total of over $4,000.
* We released these statistics a month late and so some of the figures weren’t recorded but December 2009 was by far the best month for us since the creation of the distribution. Whether it’s the income, the traffic, the rankings, this month just broke all previously established records and closed a very positive 2009 year for us on a truly fantastic note!
