In this episode: Linux Mint 13 has been released. Chrome becomes the number one web browser (kinda). Google beats Oracle. Mandriva now belongs to you. KDE has announced a new Partner Network and there's going to be a new rival to the Raspberry Pi. Share in our discoveries, speak your brains and hear your opinions in our Open Ballot, a section which has very little to do with ballots these days.
