Welcome to the 100th Issue of Linux Journal
I still tend to think of myself as a newcomer to the magazine, having been on the masthead for only one-fifth of the now 100 issues. But those 20 issues have been an enriching experience. Each issue has presented its own challenges and dilemmas.
Some issues even hosted their own minor polemics. Nothing sparks comment like nudity, and our staff had a lot of fun reading and choosing which of the letters regarding the nude cover of the Python supplement to print. Then there was the “American” debate, begun in the November 2000 issue, which also spanned more than a couple of issues. Who could forget the QSOL advertisement, also from the November 2000 issue? The “improper” implication spawned some memorable press, but I'm sure it would never have happened if we hadn't made the first step and put the naked man on the cover, obviously giving QSOL the impression that we were “that kind of magazine”. QSOL's following ad was as frightening as the previous ad was suggestive, perhaps in a effort to take revenge on on those not yet prepared for their style of advertising.
These events made the letters section perhaps the most-read part of the magazine, but the most fun part of working for Linux Journal has been the interaction with both the Linux community and the rest of the hardworking Linux Journal staff.
As our magazine is one that relies on community-submitted content, I've been fortunate to be able to get to know many very talented hackers. And I'm not just talking about the famous members of the Linux community. Just as some of the best actors in the world are only seen on community stages, some of the smartest coders are garage hobbyists or work for small companies. The general high level of goodwill that emits from our authors, regular contributing editors and is evident throughout the community, consistently impresses me and makes my job a much happier one. Our reliance on you—our readers and contributors—makes this 100th issue celebration as much yours as it is ours. Sincere thanks for all of your help and support.
Richard Vernon is editor in chief of Linux Journal.

Free Webinar: Linux Backup and Recovery
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
