I just read the article by Doc Searls in the [now digital-only] September issue. It actually gave me a better understanding of the challenges Linux Journal has faced, leading up to its decision to dump the print version. (Still not happy about that, though.)
Anyway, one of the things Searls mentions is that he was writing this article on August 1. As noted in other threads, the idea of going all-digital had to have been discussed for a long time before the decision was made, yet we--the paying subscribers--knew nothing about it until August 19 when we were notified via e-mail that the last issue we received would be the LAST issue we received. If Searls wrote his article on the first, obviously the decision was made--at the LATEST--in July...so why weren't we notified sooner?
On another note, the article says that Linux "is now the most widely used operating system." Really? That's fantastic! I'm guessing that the amazing success of Android--which was running at 300,000 activations PER DAY earlier this year--is largely responsible, but the bottom line is that "my" OS, which I've used since 1991, has finally achieved the success I always hoped it would.
