Ubuntu Format magazine: on sale now!


While visiting Mark Shuttleworth to record our podcast with him, Mark agreed to give his backing to an idea we've been experimenting with for some time. So it's with great excitement that we can now announce the launch of Ubuntu Format magazine: your #1 resource for Ubuntu news, reviews and tutorials.

If you already read Linux Format, you'll already be familiar with our formula, but if you've not come across us before here's what you can expect to find in Ubuntu Format:

  • Ubuntu news
  • Ubuntu reviews
  • Ubuntu tutorials
  • Ubuntu features
  • Ubuntu tips
  • Ubuntu on the free DVD
  • Ubuntu
  • Monobuntu
  • Brown
  • Mark Shuttleworth

Stuart Anderton, Senior Group Publishing Director Masterchief of Linux Format and Ubuntu Format, said, "while many people have predicted that print magazines are on the way out, Ubuntu Format is dead set to prove them absolutely wrong. I think the unique blend of reviews, tutorials, features and - of course - brown, will make this magazine a hit on the newsstand."

Paul Hudson, the newly appointed editor of Ubuntu Format, said, "Mark was really excited when we made the pitch to him. When we took the lift down into his volcano fortress, I have to admit we were all a bit unsure about what he might say. When we saw the sharks - and they really do have LASERS on their fricking HEADS - we were terrified. But as soon as we said we'd be including signed photographs of him with every issue, Mark was all for the idea."

Ubuntu Format is on-sale at all good magazine and book stores worldwide from today, but stocks are very limited so make sure and pick up a copy before they all sell out!
