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

Marauder's picture

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.

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.

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. 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.
