Linux New Media Launches Ubuntu User Magazine
(Lawrence, KS, USA: May 28, 2009) Linux New Media USA, LLC, announces
the launch of a new print publication, Ubuntu User magazine. Canonical's
popular Ubuntu operating system continues to win followers around the
world, and Ubuntu User is the first print magazine specifically for this
rapidly growing audience.
"Ubuntu is popular with software developers and IT professionals, but it
is also a hit with hobbyists and other desktop users who are looking for
an alternative to Microsoft Windows and don't want the restrictive
hardware policies of Apple," says Joe Casad, Editor in Chief of Ubuntu User.
In addition to reviews, interviews, community news, HowTo articles,
troubleshooting tips, and in-depth technical articles, Ubuntu User
includes a helpful Discovery Guide for readers who are new to the world
of Ubuntu. A free DVD included with each issue of Ubuntu User provides
an easy way for users to upgrade to the latest version. New users can
boot from the DVD drive without disturbing the existing installation.
"We're excited to launch a new print magazine," says Linux New Media CEO
Brian Osborn. "We've had great success over the past two years with well
designed, high-end print magazines for technical readers. Ubuntu is
popular around the world, and it's a great fit for us editorially. I
couldn't imagine a better match." In addition to the English version of
Ubuntu User magazine, Linux New Media plans to launch a German edition
later this year.
In 2007, Linux New Media opened a North American office in Lawrence,
Kansas. In addition to the new Ubuntu User magazine, editors in the
North American office produce the monthly print magazines Linux Pro
Magazine, Linux Magazine (international English edition), and special
publications including Ubuntu Special, Google Tools, and openSUSE Special.
Ubuntu User magazine is shipping now to newsstands worldwide.
