Save the BSD Magazine

I have been a subscriber since issue no 1, and I’m looking forward to many more issues. Karolina, the editor of BSD Magazine, has send round the following email:

I am sure most of you already heard that BSD magazine is going to be closed, due to much lower benefits than expected and the economy in general…

There is one last chance thought – if I somehow manage to increase the sales figures in stores the magazine will be published. I was given only one week (till Monday). Not much, but better than nothing. I think it is worth trying!

I can’t do it alone -so I am asking you for your help and support. I know most of you are already helping and I am really thankful for that.

If you could help me to promote the magazine on all forums, portals, blogs or anywhere else I would be really grateful.

I have attached the cover of the most current issue of BSD magazine if you would like to use it.

Please spread the word about BSD magazine!

In the US you can pick up a copy from Barnes&Noble, or alternatively you can buy a copy at FreeBSDMall.com.

It would be a shame to see BSD Mag disappear after only 5 issues….

    Don’t they know print is dead? Especially in tech, most IT people who is pretty much their target market go online for their info. They can publish themselves in digital format for near free….I’d pay for a digital pdf subscription every month.

    Well then Chris, please go for it !
    Login to the BSD Magazine website and sing-up for a .pdf subscription !!
    I did :)

    Well, just saw Gonzalos Post re. a .pdf-Subscription and thought that I might also go for one. However, does anyone know about the current Status of the BSD-Magazine (i.e. will or won’t they continue to publish the BSD-Magazine)? As I didn’t see any note re. the “critical” Status on their Website I’m afraid it might be to late?
