Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

:)

The content is based on the keywords found in the page. I guess the more we talk about Windows, the more the ads will as well :)

There's a "Repair for Windows XP" on top of my page at the moment. It's funny when you think that these Windows ads are actually targeting Linux users, but it's even more funny to think that, as an announcer, Microsoft is paying for that and somehow contributing to the Linux Mint project.

I stopped using my gmail account a while ago after I heard they keep everything indefinitely. Even when you delete your gmail, they keep a copy of every email you have ever received or sent for "government retrieval" legal purposes. They also keep your searches indefinitely so be careful what you google - lol.
