No More TUX

I am sad to read the news that TUX Magazine (self-described as the first and only magazine for the new Linux user) did not survive. Apparently Issue 20 was their last issue ever. They ran into financial trouble. I guess it was to be expected since their readership consisted mostly of people that want software and everything related to it to be free.

Although the writing in TUX was not top-notch, I enjoyed reading it because they catered to new Linux users like myself and introduced a lot of useful Linux software. Also their PDF landscape format made it really easy to read online. Back issues 1-20 covering March 2005 until now are still available for download. I recommend checking them out while they are still relatively relevant. Farewell TUX!
