Printing out the weekly edition -- along with the week's worth of Freshmeat that you used to put out. I'd learn about some new facet or other -- be it a journaling FS, or whether the kernel should use BitKeeper or not. It was all so daring -- even exciting. A *nix-based OS was really beginning to make inroads! I think it is safe to say that LWN has offered an awesome platform both for the dissemination of FOSS info, but also for us to comment on the stories, and learn from the others in its fantastic userbase. I remember despairing -- if understanding -- your decision to pull the plug, followed shortly by my elation that that would not be required.
Keep up the fantastic work, Jon, and everyone else. I look forward to n more years of LWN!
