Nice work Husse.

Maybe in next week's newsletter you could add a link to the results of this week's 'Wallpaper of the Week' vote? It would be fantastic to get some exposure for the great work that the artists here are producing. :)

Great work.

I think these are important as well.

I red a lot of news in the swedish IDG but they do not always provide links and sometimes i fail to find it

I think that for someone that follows the development of Linux Mint, this kind of newsletter is incipient. Every time I read one I get this sensation of deja vu...

Yes - it's what happened to Mint, which should not bring deja vu and the most important things in the computing world (one or two missed perhaps :)) the last week which can give deja vu...
But if you don't read IT news that much I hope it gives some overview
