Hello Sean,

In order to activate Linux Mint you have to first download a copy of
Ubuntu from http://ubuntu.com/download/ and proceed to use the CD to
upgrade your system.

once you've got a full fledged system, you simply go to the "Donate"
button of your choice of target project's website and type in a number
that seems reasonable for the amazingly fantastical functionality you've
been given and obviously all your credit card details.

Once this is done you'll receive an email and a warm inner glow, glow
can be used to unlock hearts and minds in the next level although can be
lost when you encounter someone who isn't following the code of conduct,
also an item worth picking up for level three.

Hope this helps, and keep venturing!
