Abstract

Linux Mint was started by a French developer, Clement Lefebvre, in 2006. It was based on Kubuntu (only for the original release; after that one, Ubuntu was the base distro). Lefebvre’s goal was to create a more elegant distro. After its release, it was slowly but continuously adopted by a growing community, largely based in Europe. However, two events would make a big difference in expanding the popularity and adoption of Mint in a short period of time.
