The Ad was offensive. Gnull & Voyd is offensive. Mango Parfait is Offensive. Are you on our side, or not?

Too much of the Linux Media is "Linux Media" in name only. When they're not being blantantly FUD-partners with the 900 pound gorilla, you find them being utterly without clue, pandering to the perceived lowest common denominator, without realizing that they're making themselves look like the stereotypes they think their readers are.

You'd think somebody might try creating a useful, thoughtful publication for people who actually care about Linux.

Contrarian, to be sure, but there might be a market there.

LXer certainly fits that description, but I was thinking something less geared at the faithful -- something like Linux Journal pretends to be on occasion. Useful how-tos, etc.

I would say we are more like a (constantly updated) newspaper than a magazine like LJ.

To put LXer in print would be a waste of trees, it would be seriously out of date within hours of publication.

>Useful how-tos, etc.

We have a link to one of the biggest how-to websites around at the top of the page.

I'll say it again here...PCLinuxOS Magazine is now circulated by over 20 thousand each month...it's available online and in PDF format AND it isn't always just PCLinuxOS :D

Is it a shameful plug? You bet...I'm proud of the magazine and what they've accomplished.
