SEATTLE, WA -- SSC Publications, publisher of the award-winning monthly magazine Linux Journal, is pleased to announce the launch of the on-line Linux Buyer's Guide:

The print edition of the Linux Buyer's Guide has always been a hit with Linux enthusiasts around the world, and this year we are excited to introduce the guide as an on-line resource. Free to all, this comprehensive directory of services and products will allow users to effortlessly search Linux-related products and companies.

Linux Journal Editor in Chief Richard Vernon commented, "With the ubiquity of Linux, the number of Linux-related products is growing exponentially and keeping track of them is certainly no easy task. The Linux Buyer's Guide brings together information on thousands of Linux-related products -- everything from server hardware to games. By switching our Buyer's Guide from a print to an on-line format, we can ensure the information is up-to-date and easily searchable."
