Linux Format (a UK magazine) is the top magazine for Linux. You may be able to pick it up at a larger book store or get it via subscription.

And check our Magazine Review section for other ideas.

Yes--Linux Format is very good. It is what I would call high-level consumer. For more depth--ie more of interest to programmers and admins---Look at Linux Journal.

I'm another LF reader. They have lots of overseas readers (particularly US and Australia) so they must be doing something right!

Also, Linux User and Developer isn't too bad, and Linux Journal.

I currently subscribe to:

Linux Format - Just wish there was a NO-DVD subscription option. I have broadband don't need the DVDs
Linux Journal - Decent content
Linux Magazine -
Sys Admin - Not all Linux.. a LOT of Unix / BSD stuff as well.. every time I think of dropping this one they have a bunch of Linux articles in the next issue, that I am interested in..

I must say the one I enjoy reading the most is Linux Format. a bit pricey for a subscription here in the states, but at least I don't miss an issue on the news stand. Linux Journal would be my second choice as well.

I agree - I don't use the DVD's, they just collect dust on my shelf. I remember reading a letter in LXF not too long ago about this issue...they said that the DVD adds little cost to the magazine, though they had considered doing a DVD (and CD) free issue. Makes me wonder why the CD version is 50p cheaper if the DVD adds little cost. Even if a no DVD version was 1 cheaper it would mean 12 less over the course of the year.
