Does anyone out there know of some linux magazines that one can subscribe to? I'm interested in seeing one that hoghlights linux in a corporate environement mainly focuinsing on the server side of thing. I get redmond magazine that keeps me up on all th Microsoft offerings completely free so I assume linux has a similiar publication.

Linux is more community-based than Windows and tends to use the Internet as a primary means of communicating so there are fewer Linux magazines than Windows out there.

I subscribe to Linux Format magazine (future publishing) ( which is UK-based but available for subscription internationally. The subscription version includes Linux Pro which focuses entirely on Linux in the enterprise/server market, although the main magazine is more general and covers the whole embedded/desktop/server/supercomputer range, and runs tutorials on things like common applications and programming toolkits.

You might also want to look at SlashDot, which is a major news source for both Linux and software generally.

I buy a magazine called "Linux for You". It deals with every field of linux, from servers to newbies. (Note: I live in India. I don't know if this is available outside)

You could also ask your local LUG. I'm sure someone in the lug gets some magazine

If you are interested in the corporate environment, you may want to look at O3Magazine.
Also, I have learned a lot from Free Software Magazine.
