Linux Mint chief not carried away by success

Interviews

Given the rave reviews that Linux Mint has been getting recently, it would be perfectly understandable if the man driving the distribution was a little swollen-headed by this time.

But Clint Lefebvre appears to have both his feet planted very firmly on the ground as he guides the team that produces what is now predicted to soon overtake Ubuntu as the most widely used GNU/Linux distribution.

Lefebvre says he has no plans to commercialise the project. He works full-time on Linux Mint. "My work is funded by the project itself. We're also planning to hire more people full time in the future," he told iTWire, in response to a query.

It would be nice if you got the name right...

As far as I can tell, reading about Linux Mint, Clement is always called Clem. No where can I find the name/nickname of Clint. Maybe you know something I don't know, but if so it would be nice for you to say so to your readers. Otherwise, if you can't even get the name right, what else can we believe of your review?
