All digital is fine with me...

I have no problem with going all-digital. To me, the content is important, not the medium.

Keep up the GREAT job that you've done in maintaining QUALITY.

Very disappointed. The only reason I subscribed is because so I can take a print version with me somewhere to read and not have to read off my computer (don't have and don't want a tablet). I just added another year to my subscription. Too bad. I won't be resubscribing. I can get all the same information for free from the internet anyways, so no need for paying for the digital edition.

I understand the reasoning behind this and it's probably a good move strategically. However, I chose print because I preferred print. I don't remember your pricing exactly, but your competitors digital only subscriptions we cheaper than that of the print, and I assume yours were also.

The fact that the digital only subscription was (or should have been) cheaper, as well as the fact that we are going to be receiving the magazine in a format we specifically chose not to receive it in when we had the choice, makes me think that there should be some sort of compensation for current print subscribers - say, an extra six months tacked on to their existing subscription as a showing of good will.

too bad

I like the magazine a lot but I don't use any e-readers nor a smartphone and I dislike very much reading periodicals on a PC screen.

Since I've already received the last issue on paper, I'll be cancelling my subscription very soon.

I hope you make it easy to get

Plans for Kindle or something easy to get on tablets?

Going all digital.... I'm out. Thanks, but no thanks. I'll be cancelling....

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

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.
