Events:

* A Hardware Database was added to the Community Website: http://www.linuxmint.com/blog/?p=1234
* Linux Mint 8 KDE CE RC1 was released: http://www.linuxmint.com/blog/?p=1238
* Linux Mint 8 Fluxbox CE RC1 was released: http://www.linuxmint.com/blog/?p=1242
* mintCast released 3 episodes of their podcast: http://mintcast.org/

Summary:

* The inevitable has finally happen and the streak of “best consecutive months” is over, this month wasn’t as good as the previous one. But with such a fantastic month in December 09 and considering what’s happening now, things aren’t that bad at all.
* The overall income is down 3% and so are most of our statistics. Everything is still pretty good though. There are clear indications that our user base has been growing a lot since November 09, the distribution is getting momentum and if it wasn’t for the huge numbers we got in December, January would have looked excellent.
* The KDE and Fluxbox CE will be released in February, work has begun on the recently codenamed Linux Mint 9 “Isadora” and we should hear news about whether or not time is given, and how much of it, to the Debian CE project.

Yeah, I read about the Linux Mint Magazine on this site a while back but where did you get it from I had no clue it came out yet? I don't see it in the official store section... ?

Here in South Florida theres not many technical people but the few people I knew who were into computing (mostly windows) are giving Linux Mint a shot and like it alot more than Ubuntu. A friend of mines whos going to colloge for some sort of computer stuff had ubuntu in a virtual machine emulator when I told him that Mint 8 was out he was wondering how easy it was to install? I prepped it on his usb, he downloaded the iso in like 5min (he has fast internet lol) then, after he formated his memory stick, I preped it for him and he installed it in a breeze(less than 30min to install). I got his video card up and running and enabled Compiz Fuision on it for him and he was in love with it. On my side, I notice my laptop is alot cooler when running mint vs Windows Vista. So it's cool with me. I haven't really broken into it yet becuase of some hardware(a phone) that wont tether with linux though so I can't judge until I get more money for better hardware or a better ISP lol. Anyhow CLEM I'm trying to say GREAT SOFTWARE LOVE IT! I gota donate soon to. I'm going to see how to do this donation thing and give a few dollars up in a little bit for the community. I know I said I was going to donate in another post but didn't becuase I got held back on a few dollars becuase of something that happened with my checks a few months back. I hope more people begin to bless your project Clem. The majority are already in your favour, thats half the battle, keep up the good work! I can't wait for Mint 9 to hit the download section! I'll be waiting... Peace =]-

Unluckily it's not "Linux Mint Megazine" yet, it was just "Linux Magazine" (Which is a monthly magazine we've here, probably also there?) And the main topic of this month was Linux Mint, nothing else, though.

Ah I see silly me I confuesed things. Clem should ship out the Magazine to people for free w/ a Linux Mint DVD/CD who donate a certain amount of $. Just a sugestion It would be cool to see. Like if you donate $10 or something you should get a linux Mint Mag. $15(or what ever) should get you the Mag w/ CD. $25 or more should get you the MAg, Live CD, and a special DVD with "how to's" tutorials and a special section with Clem where he gives his thaughts on the whole subject and takes some time to answer questions and explain new features himself. I think that would be cool, just being imaginative you guys don't take it the wrong way, how many think that would rock? hehe. I duno just a thiuaght hehe. :P

Peace out thanks for the speedy reply

thanks for the nice Distro Clem, Yahweh-God Bless.
