TuxRadar: May 2012


May turned out to be quite a busy month for us, so ahead of the long weekend in the UK, we'd thought we'd give a quick recap of some of this month's content.

First, after Ben got a generic reply from his MP about the proposed Snoopers' Charter, we published the second part of our popular LPI tutorial, along with the third and fourth parts later on in the month. We're planning to put the next part up tomorrow, but in case you need to brush up, here's the links:

LPI: Learn Linux and get certified. Part 1: Hardware
LPI: Learn Linux and get certified. Part 2: booting
LPI: Learn Linux and get certified. Part 3: filesystem layout, partitioning and shared libraries
LPI: Learn Linux and get certified. Part 4: Package Management

This month also saw the release of episodes 8 and 9 of our podcast:

Podcast Season 4 Episode 8
Podcast Season 4 Episode 9

We also published a tutorial to teach you how to script your mouse and the first part of a new PHP programmer's guide aimed specifically at beginners. Oh, and there was the whiff of scandal surrounding sales of a certain Linux magazine.

Finally, our Open Ballots garnered 64 great responses, with our most popular being 'Should Apache abandon OpenOffice?'

And that's about it for May. Thanks for all your feedback, and don't forget, you can help support us by buying Linux Format (details below). We'll see you next week for a new Open Ballot and podcast.

USA folks can subscribe to Linux Format magazine from here, http://tinyurl.com/lxfoffer, whilst then rest of us can use the following link - http://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/content/lp/linuxformat.

Digital Editions: Linux Format is available on both Apple's iPhone/iPad/Touch and Android devices through Zinio. You can also purchase individual copies from the Ubuntu Software Centre.

TuxRadar is Fantastic - Made a LXF Subscriber out of me.

Keep up the great work!

After several months of lurking on the TuxRadar website and listening to the podcast archive, I bit the bullet and subscribed to LXF (a non-trivial expense for my American budget in these tough economic times).

I love the humor in the podcasts and I've learned so much technically that I feel I've already received enough value to justify subscribing for many years to come.

Now that I'm a subscriber, access to the digital archive makes me feel like I'm a lottery winner.

Many thanks to the whole TuxRadar team, past and present.
