The BSD Magazine is to stay, well, that is, for the forseable future.
Karolina, editor of BSD Magazine, has confirmed that the BSD Magazine will continue to be published.
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.

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….
Those who’d like to have a look at the magazine without having to commit to a subscription, can now download some articles from the NetBSD issue and the whole OpenBSD-focused issue.
The latest issue is devoted to FreeBSD: A Guide to FreeBSD
