This is an announcement about the status of Linux Journal magazine.
It was written on November 19, 1993.

Robert Young, publisher of New York Unix and Phil Hughes, Linux activist
and originator of the idea of publishing Linux Journal have combined
forces to make Linux Journal a reality.  Both professionals in the
computer industry, their combined experience is over 40 years in computing,
much of that with Unix platforms and 11 years in publishing.  Phil has
written or edited many of SSC's computer publications as well as written
articles for Unix/World and other computer magazines.

The idea for Linux Journal grew out of an idea for a "free software"
journal which about 6 of us came up with in March, 1993.  The Linux
community has the right "feel" for this sort of publication and
some of us have been involved with Linux for some time.

The publication will be on paper and will contain advertising.  The idea
is to cover Linux from a user's point of view.  We expect readers
to want to get Linux up and running on their system.  We intend
to address the needs of newcomers as well as trends, licensing
discussions and general information on the industry.  These decisions
are based on the answers to a survey that was posted to Usenet 
earlier this year plus input from others in the Linux community.

Another important purpose of LJ is to show that Linux is real.
Having a publication covering a subject is going to help people
get vendors (communications board manufacturers, for example) to
support Linux.  LJ will start out small but will grow with the
community.

Advertising will both reduce the subscription cost of the publication
and help people locate hardware, software and documentation that
meets their needs.  The main reason for a paper magazine is to
make it available to all those people who don't have Internet
access.  This should both ease the burden of question answering
for Linux experts and help the Linux community grow.

The first issue of Linux Journal will be available in February, 1994.
One year (12 issue) subscriptions are $19 in the US, $29 in Canada
and $39 elsewhere.  Subscriptions can mailed to Linux Journal, 
P.O. Box 3364, Westport, CT 96880-8364 USA, FAXed to +1 203 454-2582
or phoned into (800) 546-7274.  We do accept American Express,
MasterCard and Visa/Access.  

We are also looking for authors and advertisers.
In order to handle any questions, here are e-mail addresses.
   linux@fylz.com     --  general information 
   phil@fylz.com  --  article queries, writing guidelines (Phil Hughes)
   joanne@fylz.com     --  advertising information (Joanne Wagner)

We will be setting up a list server to handle various information
requests.  Look for an announcement as soon as it is available.

In my previous post about Linux Journal the zipcode for subscriptions
was incorrect. It was indicated as 96880-8364.  The correct zipcode
is 06880-8364.  Guess I have lived on the west coast too long. :-)

Summary: Magazine for the Linux community

After close to a year in preparation, we are pleased to announce the birth of
Linux Journal, a magazine by, for and about the Linux community. This is a
printed monthly magazine. The first issue will be distributed in February,
1994.

Linux is a UNIX-like operating system that is freely copyable.  It has been
developed (and development continues) by a diverse set of people spread over
the globe. Linus Torvalds, a college student in Finland is the author of the
kernel but there are hundreds of other contributors connected together via
the Internet.

At this time Linux Journal is looking for:
   - New Product Announcements
   - Products (such as books) to review
   - Authors
   - Advertisers
Announcements and products for review can be sent to the address below.  If
you are interested in writing for Linux Journal, contact Phil Hughes at the
address below or via E-mail at ph...@fylz.com for more information on what is
needed and an author's guide.

Joanne Wagner is the Linux Journal advertising representative. She can be

Summary: What do readers want?
Lines: 154

In April, 1993 I posted a survey to see if there was interest in
a magazine about Linux.  In May I posted the results of that
survey.  The quick summary is:
- repsonse was very positive -- positive enough to convince
  us to go ahead with the project
- response was international with about 50% from the US,
  25% from Europe and the remainder from Asia, Canada, Africa
  and Australia
- virtually everybody was supportive of the idea to carry advertising
  in the magazine to minimize the subscription cost.  In fact many
  who responded suggested that they would find advertising to be
  a benefit -- making it easier to find suppliers
- virtually everyone said they would subscribe, over 30% said they
  were interested in writing articles and about 5% in advertising

Well, the first issue of LJ is approaching rapidly -- it will be available
in February, 1994. In that issue I want to include information from
the survey and thought an update might be of interest.  So, here is
the same survey from last April.  Please respond again.  We will
tabulate the results and both post it to Usenet and include it in
the first issue of LJ.

I have included the current info sheet below for those who are not
aware of what we are doing.  The survey follows.  Thanks for your
time.

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference,

UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
