    I'm fond of Linux User & Developer. It's a UK publication, and it comes with a CD or two every release of software, new Linux distros, etc. They cover topics I personally find interesting.

    Not sure whether you can get these in the USA but here in the UK i regularly by Linux Format & Linux Developer magazine.

    Well worth a read a few times and the software on the mounted DVD's is always excellent!

    The one that I have seen that is most accessable to me is Linux Magazin, www.linux-magazine.com, it comes with a dvd every month that has alot of goodies, last months came with Suse 9.1, and this months comes with a dvd that has knoppix and many other live distros. Its really nice to get thier dvd compilations every month. I think that before recently the dvd issues were only available in Europe, but they have been recently made available to other places, at least that's how I think it works.

    edit: damn, Xko you are quick also!!!

    lol - sometimes even the DVD on the cover is worth the asking price alone.

    this month we (UK) got Mandrake 10.1 on the DVD accompanying Linux Format...

    they also have a website www.linuxformat.co.uk (watch out for the ugly orange though! from where you can subscribe ~ not a plug - honest!

    Those are great especially for the cover disks but a little expensive I always wait until they come out on the shelf then buy them if I like whats on the cover disks if you want a reasonably priced mag with great info you can not go wrong with Linux Journal the oldest Linux related magazine.
    Long live the revolution!
    Have a nice day.

    Looks like linuxjournal will be my choice.

    Linuxmagazine looks fine but I don't see an option for th U.S. Also, I find it a bit pricey even though I'm not paying for it,
