Linux User Magazine

Postby antiquexray on Sun Jul 08, 2007 8:42 pm

Today, after dropping my boys off at the mall so they could see the movie "Transformer" (I have no idea why someone would want to see that movie), I stopped by the bookstore. I usually look at sci-fi books and airplane and computer magazines. The computer section was my first stop, and what did I see (???) a LinuxUser magazine with a Linux Mint CD featuring Carlos' artwork (please don't tell me she's not naked, you'll shatter my fantasy) pasted on the front; I never made it to airplanes or sci-fi. Even though it was Bianca, I bought it. This is so cool.

Here's the website http://www.linuxuser.co.uk

You can go there and see cover, but the artwork is on the disk holder.

The cover does say "LinuxMint A fresh new twist on Ubuntu"

The article is near the back, but it's three full pages with screen shots. I haven't even read it yet.

I'll see if I can scan them.

If it's the magazine I'm thinking off they've made some modifications on your Zen sat woman Carlos and they're distributing Linux Mint 2.2 Bianca Light Edition.

Oh yes, it is. They also have 4 or 5 pages on Bianca inside the magazine (with clothes on !) :)

Too bad you can't read it online, but understandable...
Would love to see the artwork though 8)

That is some serious advertising there. :D I'm going to have to stop by the local magazine store here in NYC and see if they have a copy. Congrats Clem! And good looking out Xray.

Well picked it up at a local smoke shop here and took pictures with my crappy camera that I keep for "just in case moments". So sorry about them being blurry, its a fixed lense.

My story is that I've messed with Linux off and on for about 3 years, but no distro really appealed to me (although Ubuntu was close). I stumbled onto Mint by accident and was the 57th person to join the community.

Mint restimulated my interest in Linux and I tried a number of other distros after discovering Mint, but kept coming back. I even ran Ubuntu and Linux side-by-side for awhile, but same story...back to Mint.

There are probably many advantages to run different distros, but you know what, I don't care; Mint works for me! Clem has done a wonderful job listening to his customers and giving them what they want. All indications is he's going to keep doing the same thing, and as long as he does, I'll be here.

I'll never say. Well that's one thing about the ladies of Mint, they are mysterious...
