I’ve waited for something like this for years. When I first getting into Linux, the Linux magazines out were aimed more toward system administrators and programmers. I’ve said that Linux deserves a full-featured magazine aimed at end-users, and new users at that.
Enter Tux Magazine. Very cool, published by the same people who publish Linux Journal, but aimed for the new user. The magazine is published in PDF format, and distributed for free (with registration). Useful stuff here. Reading the latest issue now.
