My experiences so far...
Let me start by saying that I'm not intending for this to be another "I hate digital" thread.
I'll admit that I'm not thrilled about the change (my reasons have already been stated by others), nor the lack of notice (also stated by others).
But I've been a subscriber for a long time, and I've gotten a lot out of my subscription. So, as much as I don't like the move to digital-only, I figure I'll give it a chance.
That being said, I already have feedback regarding the digital edition.
First- I've used Texterity in the past for other magazines, and I don't like it. So it's PDF for me (or maybe the android app if that turns out OK, but I haven't used it yet).
Second- it appears that the September issue is already out, but I never received the notification email. The email address listed in my subscription info is correct, and I see nothing in my spam logs.
Third- The login for the subscription services (including digital download) is annoying. I really don't want to memorize my (otherwise useless) subscriber ID. Can this login be changed to a username, or email address, or something more memorable?
Fourth- The "Update Subscription Information" form defaults to "enhanced digital edition" every time I go back to it, no matter how many times I choose PDF (and yes, I'm clicking "Update my Account").
So yeah. Still not thrilled. But I'll give it a few months and see how it goes.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
