Today, I want to share my personal list of hand-picked Linux related magazines, which I am reading every month to keep up with relevant Linux news and best-practice techniques, so I strongly encourage to check out these magazines to benefit from insights of the most experienced journalists in the business.

I am subscribed to Linux Voice, Linux Journal and Linux Format magazines.

I am not affiliated with any of the mentioned brands, so you can trust that my proposals are only for the benefit of the whole community.

Linux Voice

Linux Voice is a relatively new magazine created by the former Linux Format editorial team who wanted to create better Linux magazine and share part of the profits with the community.

They record an awesome podcast and freely share published issues after nine months period using Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike (CC BY-SA) license.

Personally, it is the most enthusiastic magazine and my favorite one.

You can choose subscription option between digital only DRM-free PDF and ePub formats or print plus digital.

Discontinued, new content from Linux Voice contributors is published in Linux Magazine.


Linux Journal

Linux Journal is a magazine for the global Linux community published since 1994, so you will recognize some familiar faces. It is great magazine for Open Source enthusiasts.

There is digital DRM-free PDF, ePub and mobi format subscription option available.


Linux Format

Linux Format is the first foreign magazine I have subscribed to. It is fascinating choice for Linux users and provides many topics for discussions with friends.
Yes, there are some controversial choices here, but it is a really good magazine overall.

Remember: get print only subscription option to access digital DRM-free PDF format issues.
