Linux Magazine

Hi, I wanted your opinion regarding which Linux Magazines out in the market are userful and informative for someone like me. I am a computer science student and wish to learn more coding under linux and just linux in general. Look forward to your responses...

When I first started out with Linux, I actually subscribed to Linux Magazine which helped me out in learning more, etc.

There are several others though you could also check out like Linux Format and Linux Journal, etc.

Linux Magazine is pretty good. I'd say it's a mix between more basic stuff and some advanced articles such as one on using Ganglia for cluster monitoring that was in the last issue I bought. You're as likely to find an overview of the new features being put into the 2.6 kernel as you are to get a detailed article on gcc and refining code to get less compiler error messages.

Linux User and Developer is another one I've gotten a few issues of. I'd say it seems to focus more on the eye-candy and reviews of such of various distros or software. A bit more like a conventional magazine, but in my view a little bit expensive and full of spelling and grammar errors. It certainly has some very good detailed articles as well, but I was a bit dissapointed by a few weak pieces in the last issue. It's also based out of the UK, so perhaps that has something to do with the hefty price.
