This is particularly good considering there were only 28 days that month as opposed to 31 the month before. Donations decreased. From $4,000 in December they’re down to $2,500 in February. February was a very busy month for the team. 3 stable releases were out. Although the most important Distrowatch indicator is down (traffic share: 4.6%), the distribution started to get more coverage in the press and in the media. Development started on Linux Mint 9. March should see the releases of the Xfce and LXDE editions. (Distributions)
