Digital Edition Happy User

Hello.
I'm a LJ subscriber from a lot of years and I wasn't surprised by the migration to the Digital Edition. I know that a lot of people (as my colleagues) like the paper, but I'm used to read manuals in electronic format from more than 15 years and I don't try to expose the pros of the digital newspaper (first at all saving trees, for example, or the search of a particolar word).
It's just a different approach of reading.
Read a digital book is different than a "normal" newspaper.
For example,I use to read the index, to see if some articles are of my particular interest and then I read those directly. After that I start from beginning and go to the end (just because other articles may be useful but I have never follow that).
Anyway, the "problem" of the digital edition is not paper or not, is to change the mind also starting from the approach to read LJ, and this is what a lot of people refuse.
Anyway I'll be always happy when LJ arrives, in any kind of mailbox I will receive it.
Best Regards.

Linux as a whole is great

AliceS's picture

Linux as a whole is great, and the more people that realize it, the better. If you confuse people by putting them in over their heads at first, it'll just turn them off of linux as a whole (or possibly #!, assuming that since they didn't like it when they were new users, they'll never like it). Overall I see the review (and general approach to reviewing) as positive, just coming from a place of ignorance, which as the husband of a journalist is annoying. I'd say similar things to some youtube video reviewers who get quid in advance, boot the system in a virtual box, then look through the menus and tell you that they like openoffice, and are really pumped that the distro comes with gimp.

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

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. 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.
