There are a considerable number of Linux magazines available, in contrast to some vested interest computer magazines which appear to be boycotting Linux for some as yet undisclosed reason. Meanwhile some pro-Linux magazines have an almost revolutionary tone to them and some even include a flag to put up in defiance at the bland microsoftishness persisting in the oldfashioned world.
