Linux Journal:
The Monthly Magazine of the Linux Community

Specialized Systems Consultants
A book review by Danny Yee © 1995 http://dannyreviews.com/
Linux Journal is now a year old. It is an attractively presented publication with lots of colour, devoted solely to the Linux operating system. The April 1995 issue ran to 64 pages and contained the following (a fairly typical mix): The remainder of the magazine (a little over a third) consisted of advertisements. These are actually quite interesting, as they give a good idea of the range of applications now available for Linux. Although some of the articles are aimed at novices to Unix/Linux, most assume prior experience, and some of them are quite technical (the material on ELF binaries and shared libraries in this issue, for example). Some of the articles are relevant to Unix in general: the pieces on xfig and plan 9 in this issue are examples.

Linux Journal maintains high quality in writing, editing and layout, and I normally read at least half the articles in each issue.
