* Donations decreased. From $4,000 in December they’re down to $2,500 in February.
* February was a very busy month for the team. 3 stable releases were out.
* Although the most important Distrowatch indicator is down (traffic share: 4.6%), the distribution started to get more coverage in the press and in the media.
* Development started on Linux Mint 9.
* March should see the releases of the Xfce and LXDE editions.
