    Episode 10 was released. Rik sent me a PM about it. Luckily I am a subscriber and was quite impressed with this edition. They talked about firefox, kopete, and a music making application for drummers, as well as a great article on Open Office 2.0.

    If you are slightly interested in Linux you should be all over TUX Magazine!

    Good review of XandrOS. It agrees with me so it has to be a good review. It strongly recommends XandrOS for newbies.

    Still free for the rest of the year for me (what are they charging for it, because, depending on the price it could be worth it.)

    Below is the email that TUX sent out dealing with the subscription issue. It was dated 7/25/2006.
    _______________________________________________________________

    Dear TUX Subscriber,

    This week you'll notice a change in TUX. It will move from being a
    free digital magazine to a paid one. Your current complimentary
    subscription will be extended for 12 issues (expiring after the
    July 2007 issue). That being said, this is just a note to let you
    know what's happening -- there's nothing at all you need to do
    today. Your free subscription will continue to be delivered to you
    as you had originally requested.

    When your subscription does expire, we will send you a notice
    offerring you an opportunity to renew at our paid rate of just
    $9.95/12 issues. In addition, since you've been a long-time (and
    apprecited!) loyal subscriber, we'll make certain to offer you a
    very special gift if you do decide to renew at that time. Again
    though, there's nothing for you to do today. Your free subscription
    to TUX will continue through July 2007.

    We started TUX in 2004 because we felt strongly it was a needed
    publication within the Linux community (many of our Linux Journal
    readers would write in asking for exactly this, and truthfully, many
    of our own staff members wanted to learn more about their Linux
    desktops also). We invested revenues from our other publication,
    Linux Journal, to make it possible. We've seen it as a labor of
    love. Today, however, 15 issues later, we need to turn TUX into a
    self-supporting publication and that's why we are asking for our
    readers' help.

    We promise to put more heart and effort into TUX with this
    conversion. In the coming months, you can expect several new topics
    and article series introduced by TUX Editor Kevin Shockey.

    Please let us know how we can make TUX better for you. We strongly
    encourage your feedback and suggestions; please send to
    info@tuxmagazine.com.

    >From all of us at TUX Magazine, we sincerely thank you.
