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?

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.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? 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.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
