Linux Magazine

Linux Magazine (ISSN 1471-5678, aka Linux Magazine International; North America: Linux Pro Magazine, ISSN 1752-9050; German: Linux-Magazin, ISSN 1432-640X) is an international professional journal. It addresses itself to readers who work professionally with operating systems based on the Linux kernel. Linux Magazine is published by the Linux New Media division of the German media company Medialinx AG. Linux New Media is the largest Linux magazine publisher in the world.[1] Linux Magazine was first published in German in 1994, and later English, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish versions were introduced. Medialinx has operated internationally for over ten years.[2] The magazine is published on the first Thursday of each month. Every issue includes a DVD, usually featuring a recent version of some Linux distribution. The website keeps a comprehensive archive of back issues, with content more than 6 months old available as a free download in PDF format.

Linux-Magazin is among the oldest magazines about Linux in the world. The first German language issue appeared in October 1994, seven months after Linux Journal's first issue, as the information paper for DELUG, the German Linux user group. The slogan of the magazine is „Die Zeitschrift für Linux-Professionals“ (German for "The magazine for Linux professionals").

InfoStrada's American-based magazine

When Linux New Media launched their North American version of Linux-Magazin, to avoid a naming conflict with another magazine called Linux Magazine published in the United States by InfoStrada, Linux New Media's American and Canadian magazine took the name Linux Pro Magazine.

Linux Magazine (ISSN 1536-4674) was a magazine about Linux written in English and published in the United States by Mountain View, California-based InfoStrada. Their magazine covered system administration, Linux distros, free software, Linux development and other topics.

In June 2008, Linux New Media purchased assets from InfoStrada related to their magazine.[3] InfoStrada's Linux Magazine is no longer offering print subscriptions. The website for InfoStrada's Linux Magazine was acquired by QuinStreet's network, so no name-change was applied to Linux New Media's North American magazine. The latest article on QuinStreet's site is dated June 30th, 2011.
