Donation to Support Linux Mint Development

My first Linux OS is Ubuntu after accidentally install it using wubi. But my main Linux OS is none other than Linux Mint. Julia was my first, and now I am using Katya. (Linux Mint 11). I have to admit that my laptop is quite old(2009), so only Mint can offer me stability and compatibility.

Don’t get me wrong, I still use Ubuntu and its a great OS. But if you read Mint blog, I was so touched that they even display 1 dollar donor. This is to show that they are really thankful. That is why I decided to donate from my PayPal account. Its easy to donate from PayPal, just provide your PayPal email account and PayPal will do the rest. I do get some money from links selling on my blog, so a dollar or two to donation is not much.

My point here is that, if you like and use Linux Mint or other Linux OS, remember that you use it for free. The development team work hard for it. They have to pay for programmer, developer and hosting. Donate a dollar or more to them will help them to continue provide this great OS for free in the future.

So if you think you have some extra money to donate to them, just go to Linux Mint  and share some love. You will get a lovely banner to impress your friends like I did : ).

My Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot with Gnome 3.2

Just upgrade to latest Ubuntu release Oneiric Ocelot 11.10. My first  impression was WOW! no more bugs. Actually I am a bit disappointed with Natty Narwhal Ubuntu 11.04. Lot of bugs and crash with unity and even gnome. Canonical team has worked hard to improve Ubuntu 11.10. Kudos to them.

Unity works smoothly and Gnome will not let you down. If you would like to try them just visit to download.



Choose Ubuntu Official Ad

Ubuntu has launched a new Youtube Channel, Celebrate Ubuntu to promote Ubuntu. The commercial featured a lot of Ubuntu Key performance for marketing. Which is a good step to grab the attention and interest of other PC user to try Ubuntu.

I am not asking you to try install it straight away. But you can try it using LiveDVD. Get the feel of Ubuntu. Feel the power open source
