I'm Marouane. I think it was a good opportunity for me to discover Linux Mint when I was looking for an alternative for Ubuntu Unity... (even if it has the potential to be something good, but it still need a lot of work...).
In my country (Tunisia), there's a lot of local teams promoting Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSuse (these are the ones I know about)... And I do believe Linux Mint should be promoted as well in Tunisia!
So, even if I'm still finding my way to explore all the potential of Mint, I've started a blog about it (and I've already put a little request on the art forum to help me with the banner). I'll try to make some tutorials. Even if the forum is in French (that's the langage used in High techs in Tunisia), I'll try to help in arabic versions of Linux Mint (starting with the users guide...), it would take sometime, but late is better than never, right
