Linux Mint Makes Money with Minty Merchandise
Linux Mint founder, Clement Lefebvre, has done an amazing job monitizing his Ubuntu offshoot. Not only does the project have sponsors in the business community who wish to assure Mint stays in production, but his monthly donations are impressive as well. Now Lefebvre has announced yet another partnership and the ribbon-cutting of his Minty fresh store.
The latest coup is a partnership with ThinkPenguin to sell computers with Linux Mint installed. ThinkPenguin sells several configurations and offer a choice of distributions - although it looks as though Ubuntu is default.
