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.

Opensource digital content

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.
