A Herd of Print Linux Magazines

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Journal
| Linux Journal is the grandaddy of them 
| all, founded in 1994 by Phil Hughes. Now 
| it is published by Belltown Media, owner 
| Carlie Fairchild, who acquired Linux 
| Journal in 2006. Over the years Linux 
| Journal has been home to regular writers 
| like Marcel Gagne and his "Cooking With 
| Linux" column, which was the most 
| controversial LJ feature. Why? Not because 
| he used bad language, or flamed anyone, 
| but because of his Chez Marcel and French-
| waiter-serving-wine schtick. It was both a 
| regular Reader's Choice winner, and the 
| recipient of the most hate mail.
| LJ has always covered a wide range of 
| topics, such kernel programming, system 
| and network administration, security, 
| desktop, multimedia, games, and industry 
| news.
| Linux Pro Magazine
| Linux Pro Magazine is called Linux 
| Magazine outside of the US and Canada; in 
| the US there is another Linux Magazine. 
| There is no relation between the two 
| except a confusing similarity of names. 
| Linux Pro Magazine covers all the usual 
| topics, plus extensive Linux conference 
| coverage. Their Event Calendar is 
| comprehensive, and they provide live and 
| archived videos of many conferences. Linux 
| Pro Magazine is distributed in several 
| countries and languages, such as Poland, 
| Spain, Germany, and Brazil.
| There is a new sister publication to Linux 
| Pro, Ubuntu User. Ubuntu User features 
| good tech articles, and informative pieces 
| from Ubuntu insiders such as Jono Bacon 
| and Amber Graner.
| Linux Magazine
| This is the Not-Linux Pro Magazine, just 
| plain old Linux Magazine. They no longer 
| have a print edition, which ceased 
| publication in 2008. I'm mentioning them 
| here to (hopefully) clear up the confusion 
| between the two Linux Magazines. It's an 
| excellent publication even if they don't 
| sell nice glossy printed pages anymore.
| Linux Format
| Linux Format is based in the UK.



Ubuntu Hits Italian National Television (again)

| One interesting thing about the report is
| how heavily they focus on the Koala as the
| mascot of the release. Ubuntu generally
| takes the view that its release mascots are
| used only during the development phase, and
| that the final version when released should
| be referred to by its version number
| (Ubuntu 9.10, in this case). However the
| way that the programme focused on the image
| of the Koala demonstrates that people will
| find it easy to associate with such
| mascots.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
