I've been subscribing to Linux Journal for a few years. Today I was disappointed to find out that they are discontinuing their print edition and they are going digital only. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I like the fact that I can hold a magazine in my hands and flip through the pages without having to boot my computer or worry about running out of battery power.
From the email sent to subscribers:
We understand that many readers still prefer hard-copy magazines. But, we also have seen many long-standing, excellent publications either come to an end or grow very thin due to drastic increases in printing costs and decreases in print advertising budgets. We don't want either of those things to happen to Linux Journal, and we are making this change so we can continue delivering the quality content our readers enjoy. We have a core readership that has stuck with us -- and stuck with Linux -- for a generation. You, our readers, are at the very heart of Linux, and always have been. We want to keep that heart beating.
Oh well, I guess I'm not going to change their mind on this. Linux Journal is a great magazine for Linux enthusiasts and professionals alike. If you've never read it, now is your chance to check it out for free. As part of their digital only roll out, Linux Journal has made the September 2011 digital issue free. Hit the following link to view the September 2011 issue of Linux Journal.
I think you'll find it to be a quality publication.
