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.

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.
