Has Borders and Barnes & Noble Quit Carrying LJ?

Greetings all,

I am used to picking up my monthly edition of LJ at either Borders or B&N, depending on where I am at on any given day of the month, but this month, I can't find it at any Borders or B&N and no one at the store can offer any explanation. I finally tracked down the December issue today at a local bookstore that is pretty far away from my normal travels. So does anyone know what it up?


P.S. Yes, I know I should subscribe, but circumstances do not allow that right now.

Me too

I noticed this too. I'm hoping to see it again soon at my favorite book stores.

Someone drop the ball here?

We are still being carried

I am sorry that you were unable to find Linux Journal at these chains, but I promise we are still being carried at both Barnes & Noble and Borders.

Hopefully this either signals that our issue has sold out or perhaps there was a delay in shipping due to the holidays. Regardless, if you ever see that store is out of Linux Journal, please let them know that you were looking for a copy and request that they increase there monthly order.

Check out the current offer we are running, CLICK HERE If you subscribe, you can save up to 65% on home delivery.

If you do end up ordering, send me an email and I will hook you up with something extra.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
