News and summary:

The death of Robin was the most tragic and important event for many in our community this month. He was very active within Linux Mint and appreciated by a lot of people. I would like to add my personal condolences to all who miss him, his friends and family and the people within my team who were shaken by this tragedy.
Linux Mint 12 was approved for an RC release and should come out in about 2 days. In terms of quality, there are concerns about mint4win and MATE. MGSE and the Gnome 3 desktop passed QA with success.
I would like to thank all the people who answered our call with donations and sponsorships. The support we got this month has been fantastic! The donations are at an all-time high. Some of them were extremely generous, and just to imagine 237 people gathered to help us is something truly unique. Many thanks to all people involved in helping us financially.
Thanks to all the people who help us by other means as well. Their help isn’t always as tangible and not as quantifiable but it’s an important part of our project. We work hard on making a good desktop, but we don’t engage in marketing or promotion. When people spread the word, show Linux Mint to their friends, neighbours and colleagues, when from 1 happy user we get 2, 3, or 4… when this buzz and excitement contributes to make our work known to others, our user base grows and the attention the media is giving us gets bigger. Today, we’re number #1 at Distrowatch. We can congratulate ourselves for getting there, not only our distribution but the project and the community as a whole.
Finally, just a quick note to KDE users. We will switch our focus to giving KDE another release and this process will start this December after Linux Mint 12 is out.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi Clem!

It would be advantageous if you could also publish other sources of revenue from Linux Mint (advertising, etc.) ... for transparency reasons.

Thank you,
Werner

¿Transparency? Clem carried LM to the top (Distrowatch), Contributes and is an active member of the MATE project and CINNAMON, LM 12 is a gem, but what you want to convince you that Clem makes good use of donations?
