About time you went digital

I for one applaud your decision to go digital. Where is it written that we must have books and magazines on paper? Time for a change, and I believe this is a change for the better -- less wasteful, easy to search, active links to resources, bookmarks, etc. And as our digital technology advances, it's only going to get better yet.

Your Enhanced Digital Edition looks great! And the pdf, too. It would be nice to have in epub format as well.

Keep up the good work!

Thing is, Linux Journal has

Thing is, Linux Journal has been available in a "Digital Edition" subscription for quite a while now. Personally, I find physical hard-copy magazines to be much more useful and attractive, especially for casual reading.

When Dr. Dobb's Journal stopped print publication and went entirely digital I found it less useful and pretty much stopped reading it. I fear that the same may happen with Linux Journal. Plus having it in a physical format makes it easier for others to pick up and browse, to loan a copy, etc.

It was made fairly clear that a big part of the reasoning was the increasing costs associated with a print publication. That is certainly understandable but I am many others would have been more than happy to pay increased subscription fee to cover LJ's increasing publication costs in order to keep receiving the printed magazine.

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

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.
