Linux Mint announces New partnership with Mattel and Microsoft
We are happy to announce that Linux Mint entered in a joined partnership with Mattel and Microsoft. This partnership will result in Linux Mint being pre-installed on a new range of computers sold throughout the World and in a number of toys and games distributors.
The system will protect users against central software sources, such as the getdeb website, APT repositories and the download of .deb formatted files. APT and the .deb compatibility will be replaced with a new software manager including the latest offers from Microsoft. Users will be able to pay online for DLC without having to go to the shop to buy their favorite software.
Oh… wait, it’s not going to be called Linux Mint anymore. It’s going to be called…. “April Foo OS”
