Linux Mint Contest

This contest is now over.

Linux notes from DarkDuck, together with other organizers, recently ran a contest for the lovers of Zorin OS. That contest had a great success. That's why I think this is a good idea to repeat the contest.

PACKT Publishing has recently announced the release of their book Linux Mint System Administrator’s Beginner's Guide. This is a good reason to run a contest about Linux Mint, and award the winner with a FREE copy of the book.

Of course, you still have an option to buy this book:
However, read on to get a chance to get it for FREE!

This contest is organised together by PACKT Publishing,  Linux notes from DarkDuck and Buy Linux CDs.

Who can participate?

Everyone with a passion for Linux, and with some writing skills. If you're good enough to compose a short e-mail to your friend, then you're ready for the contest.

What you need to do?

Please write a short story about Linux Mint, or maybe just Linux in general.

Why do you use Linux? How did you come to the Linux world? What do you like here? What are you doing to promote Linux? Any of these, or maybe your own themes are good.

It would be better, if your post is about Linux Mint, but this is just "nice to have".

The text you're going to write should not be one-liner. Please be little bit more productive. At least 50 words, if you don't mind.

To increase your chances of winning keep visiting this page - Linux Mint System Administrator’s Beginner’s Guide.
