What happened with MintMag?

Postby Arrow2Knee » Tue Dec 20, 2011 8:05 am

I was searching for a Mint Linux magazine, to learn some more about this OS.

I found: viewtopic.php?f=143&t=3407

But there seems to be only 1 issue. Is there still being worked at?

That topic is locked, which means that replying to it is senseless. I suppose that in the past some reply was removed by a moderator, and the topic was locked to avoid other senseless replies. There's no message about the lock at the end, all we can do is wonder about what happened until someone posts a reply that makes sense.

There have been several threads from 2007 and 2009 about MintMag (search for "mintmag" if you like). Unfortunately, it didn't materialize any further.

Quoting the late Husse:

It takes a lot of dedication to maintain this kind of a project (MintMag). Priorities change and volunteers can only do so much.
