As a long time readers of Linux Journal and supporters of open source community we have been devastated when on December 1st 2017 Carlie Fairchild put the final nail in the coffin:
“It looks like we’re at the end, folks. If all goes according to a plan we’d rather not have, the November issue of Linux Journal was our last.
The simple fact is that we’ve run out of money, and options along with it”. – Linux Journal Ceases Publication

It seems the reports of Linux Journal’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Well, fresh winds of 2018 bring new hopes: The Linux Journal is dead, long live the Linux Journal 2.0!
“it turns out we’re not dead. In fact, we’re more alive than ever, thanks to a rescue by readers—specifically, by the hackers who run Private Internet Access (PIA) VPN, a London Trust Media company. PIA are avid supporters of freenode and the larger FOSS community”, Happy New Year- Welcome to Linux Journal 2.0!
