Much has been said already with which I agree: it's the only thing for which I am willing to pay a subscription, the value of the Grumpy Editor series should not be underestimated, I never knew the kernel index page was there.
I find the security news useful; yes, as a sysadmin I subscribe to distribution specific lists but it is useful to have a feel for overall trends.
I look at LWN, often via .rss, several times a day, but use the weekly edition to be sure not to have missed anything.
Much of the kernel page is beyond my ken, but I still read it in order to (sort of) understand the development trends.
Howtos could be useful but only if they are at a high technical level. Similarly if you can find good, very good, contributors fine, but quality before quantity.
