Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Talking of which, we're ready to ship CDs for Bianca. I already sent two orders :)

The price is way more than $8 or $9 (it's $30) because the product includes free worldwide shipping, artwork, a booklet (with nice tips and tricks inside), a DVD case and is packaged in a nice shrink wrapped DVD case. Also, some of the money goes to Linux Mint so you contribute to the project when you buy that. It's more suitable for people who want to offer it or receive it for themselves but it's a really nice product.

And for people who don't care about the packaging and the donation and just want the ISO itself and can't download it, there's a lot of companies which ship burnt CDs of Linux Mint for less than $5.
