In my opinion the move from hard copy magazines to digital format marks the end of Linux Journal as we know it, and not in a good way.
I have been buying Linux Journal for about five years and have had a subscription for about 1.5 years.
Even though I buy other Linux magazines Linux Journal is the only one that I buy on a regular basis (I never miss an issue).
I buy Linux Journal for 2 main reasons:
1. I am passionate about Linux and Linux Journal is in my opinion is the best publication available.
2. It is a hard copy magazine that I can read anywhere (I usually read it on the train ride to work).
No longer having a hard copy of the magazine means that it no longer meets my needs.
If I want to read information on my computer screen I can get everything that is in Linux Journal from the Internet. From this point of view having a digital copy serves no purpose.
I can no longer read Linux Journal on the train, whilst relaxing on the balcony on the weekends, or any other place I would normally read it.
Thanks Linux Journal for providing a great magazine over the years, reading it has been pure pleasure.
However, I definitely won’t be renewing when my subscription expires.
BTW, the digital options available are very poor.
Reading PDF on a small screen device is definitely not fun.
The enhanced digital edition is not much better.
