Our Journey in these two years was not as much smooth as it seems. We’d set goals for ourselves and tried to achieve it, with perfection. Our competition from the day we started was not with anyone other than with ourselves and even today we are moving ahead on the same track and putting our hardship and valuable time for writing howto’s, tips & tricks and technical articles and the same is recognized and endorsed by the readers globally.

TecMint is an initiative to educate and guide to each audience about GNU/Linux Operating System & Open Source Softwares. Besides the tremendous workload and pressure we are committed to keep our site active and updated in regular interval with the following topics.

  1. Linux Howto’s Guide, Tip & Tricks.
  2. Linux Tutorials on Distribution Installation, Configuration, Server Monitoring and Updation.
  3. Daily Linux News about Distro’s and Tools.
  4. Basic Linux Command and Interview Questions.
  5. Basic Shell Scripting Guides.

We have been working all these years as a non-profit organization paying our Bandwidth, Internet, Server and other associated bills with the money generated by our Advertisements. For sometimes we were experiencing heavy traffic and Bandwidth utilization hence moving to private server was the only choice.

We opted to open donation accepting window to support our expenses in maintaining servers and bandwidth. For being transparent in the supporting donations we get, we are publishing donor name and amount in our weekly newsletters.
