More for paper? Yes. Any charge for electronic? Definitely No.

I couldn't possibly be adding anything new to the sentiment already expressed here, but maybe weighing in will blunt the frustration a little. Real paper is plainly *not* the same experience as virtual -- not even close. I'm not really even sure I understand the point of a commercial electronic format. I am very doubtful LJ will be able to distinguish themselves from the enormous mass of freely available material that will continue to be available at large.

I would have paid more for paper, had that been an option. I will pay nothing for electronic data.

I'm seriously disappointed.

They went digital and don;t charge for their digital content. If Linux Journal thinks I'll pay $29.95 a year for digital content, they are crazy. I am going to cancel my subscription, I paid for a paper copy, if they aren't going to send a paper copy, I expect a full refund.

Digiatl should be free, just like Linux Magazine

I used to be both a Linux Magazine and Linux Journal subscriber, I was disappointed when Linux Magazine quit publishing a paper magazine. They went digital and don;t charge for their digital content. If Linux Journal thinks I'll pay $29.95 a year for digital content, they are crazy. I am going to cancel my subscription, I paid for a paper copy, if they aren't going to send a paper copy, I expect a full refund. It was a contract, I had a 100 issue subscription, and I expect a FULL refund or the full amount, not just unmailed issues.

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.

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.
