Coming Full Circle on PCLinuxOS Magazine

I see articles like OSWeekly’s “The Future of Publishing with Linux Magazines” and I chuckle a bit.

Mainly because PCLinuxOS Magazine will have its 12 monthly issue published next month. That’s right, we’ve been here a year. Now, I can’t take credit for this fantastic Linux resource because I only sponsor it and help make executive decisions regarding hosting and other things like that…it’s in the hands of great editors and contributors and is continually growing. The staff is well over 10 people strong and gaining.

You’d think that OSWeekly would take this magazine into consideration when writing this article…but they instead opt mentioning and considering the fate of Full Circle Magazine in the Ubuntu community. Now don’t get me wrong, Full Circle is a great magazine and we’re glad they’re also producing a quality magazine for their community…It just perturbs me a bit that the hard working editors, contributors, and proofreaders and layout/website designers that put together PCLinuxOS Magazine don’t get any mention or credit when it comes to online magazines.

So, I’d like to take some time congratulating PCLinuxOS Magazine…with a circulation of over 15 thousand for the PDF alone and nearing 10 thousand unique hits on the HTML Magazine that they simultaneously publish each month for low bandwidth users. Congratulations PCLinuxOS Magazine! For making a magazine not only interesting to PCLinuxOS users but to Linux users as a whole!

    I agree with you about this. I think the author should have done a little research before putting fingers to keyboard. Here he was talking about online linux mags and he didn’t mention your mag or another one which has been around as long as TUX but that has remained successful and which is not tied to a distro: Free Software Magazine. I think it’s been 3 years now and they (like PCLinuxOS mag) just keep getting better.

    Keep up the good work on your mag.

    Vote this article up on fsdaily.com – like digg but for free software only.

    Definately,

    Free Software Magazine is also a great resource. Obviously, I only penned one side of this having a direct involvement with PCLinuxOS Magazine. Thanks for reminding readers of this other great addition to online linux mags!
