Clem Lefebvre, Lead Linux Mint Developer, has recently announced that Linux Mint entered a partnership with Blue Systems, a German company that is known for sponsoring free and open source projects such as Netrunner and KDE-projects like kcm-gtk-config.

Blue Systems isn’t a simple supporter of Linux Mint; Lefebvre added that Blue Systems is the new primary sponsor for the Linux-based computer operating system. Thanks to the support provided by Blue Systems, a new full-time developer can be contracted for the entire duration of 2012.

The partnership between Linux Mint and Blue Systems stipulates that Linux Mint will share its knowledge and expertise with Netrunner and it says that both distributions will work together on improving their respective KDE editions.

“Although Netrunner and Linux Mint KDE offer a different experience, they’re built on the same technology,” said Clem Lefebvre. “This cooperation between the two distributions will have positive effects on both,” the Lead Linux Mint developer added.

In related Linux Mint and entering partnerships news, back in September 2011, Linux Mint announced that it signed a partnership with UnixStickers.com, the Italian company that delivers Linux-related stickers to Linux fans all over the world. As part of the partnership UnixStickers.com has some very nice Linux Mint stickers to offer. The stickers “are extremely cheap and of very good quality,” Lefebvre explained at the time.

The stickers are 17mm wide and 26mm high, laminated and printed on top quality vinyl, and can be removed without tearing, do not leave residues on surfaces.

You can get a Linux Mint sticker from UnixStickers.com for the very affordable price of €0.45 (about $0.60). For every Linux Mint sticker purchase UnixStickers.com will donate €0.10 towards supporting the Linux Mint Project.

Getting a Linux Mint sticker is one of the several ways in which you could support Linux Mint. Additional information on how you can show your support is available here.
