Well, read the forums and you'll see: everybody is. I make the releases, but I pack them with everybody's ideas, suggestions, improvements, artwork. So it's more of a community process than anything else.
Now now Clem, you are way too humble. Clem is the man behind Linux Mint, he is the heart and brains of the distro. It was his idea and dream, he's been very humble and gracious with all of the support that the community gives.
I have to say Mint REALLY gets my Linux blood going! It's absolutely GREAT.
Man Linux has really made great strides in the past 10 years! 10 years ago I wouldn't touch it with a 50 foot poll, today YEAH BABY!
I can't thank the Linux community enough for making it so "Average Joe" worthy!
