The Linux Mint team entered a partnership with ThinkPenguin. And, in partnership with ThinkPenguin, CompuLab, OSDisc and HELLOTUX, the team opened the Linux Mint Store.

Yesterday we had nothing but bad news to report about Linux Mint, mainly the fact that Linux Mint 11 Katya reached end of life – the operating system is now obsolete and you are advised to upgrade to a new Linux Mint edition. Today, we have some good news to report.

The first good news is that Linux Mint entered a partnership with ThinkPenguin, American company that sells Linux computers and related products and services. As part of the partnership, 10% from the sale of Linux Mint branded items and computers running Linux Mint will be donated by ThinkPenguin towards supporting the Linux Mint Project.

The second news is that the Linux Mint Store launched, in partnership with the aforementioned ThinkPenguin and in partnership with CompuLab, OSDisc and HELLOTUX. The Linux Mint Store is a special section of the Linux Mint official website, section that puts together all the Linux Mint branded merchandise sold by the aforementioned partners.

“As a GNU/Linux distribution, we specialize in distributing, packaging and developing software. We’re extremely focused and we do not produce, sell or ship anything. Thanks to a network of strong and reliable partners we are now able to provide Linux Mint products to the community while creating another source of income for the distribution,” explained Lead Linux Mint Developer Clem Lefebvre.

You can visit the new Linux Mint Store by clicking this link.

Please note that all the items in the store link to the websites of Linux Mint’s partners, to the websites where the items are available for purchase. Go check out the store and see if you find something you like.
