Split free/non-free content

One option that crossed my mind was to distinguish between the free and non-free content in the weekly edition.
Free content would essentially be limited to the stuff you lift/scrape from other sites or that gets pushed to you in some way:
* Linux in Business
* Linux in the news
Non-free content would consist of your terrific analysis sections (which, to my mind, are the cream of the site) and the distributions research:
* Front Page
* Kernel development
This isn't to suggest that the free content is developed without your editorial expertise. I realize that you invest a serious percentage of your staff time in those pages -- and it shows. It's just that the public can largely get that news in other (albeit less efficient and direct) ways, and probably wouldn't be a big draw for subscribers.
