Re: Keep Gimp in Mint 9!

one of the best things about mint is the screen that first pop ups when you install the system for the first time that lets you know where the forums are and a link to mints knowledge base. It would be great if part of that screen was a setup wizard to ask you what types of things you wanted to do w...

Re: we want a mint store

cafepress does have high quality shirts. We could possibly use cafepress to make the high quality shirts and then resell them on linuxmint.com so that the distro makes some money. Though we will also need cheap shirts for people that want to support mint but dont have $25 bucks to spare.

Re: we want a mint store

i love the artwork on deviant art. some of the most creative minds post their art on that website. it would be a good idea to have artwork on deviant art to sale, though we should still probably have our own store on mint.com. maybe you could ask deviant art who prints their stuff for them so that w...

Re: Cheap T-shirts

I think that cheap shirts is something that people would definitely want. Though of course when I say cheap I mean in price not in quality. Having a Mint store on this website that sell shirts would probably help in the costs that it takes to create and maintain Mint. Should probably talk to clem ab...

Re: Attention: Clem! Creating Linux Mint LoCo Team

Re: Grub Splash outdated

the splash that you have looks great. Mint could always use better graphics to help the distro look better. sometimes simple is better, take for instance the splash screen of mac os x windows 7. Both of their boot splashes are simple yet very professional. Should we go the way of a simple splash lik...

Promotion Campaign for December

December is a cold time of the year for most people around the world, and when its cold internet usage goes up. I thought it would be awesome if every month we focus on a different way to promote Mint. Seeing that Mint 8 was just released it seems like the perfect way to promote Mint would be to ann...

Re: Download vignettes
