I was not sure if you heard the news or not, but Future
publications, the parent company of Imagine Media, has pulled the
plug on Maximum Linux.
They actually shutdown 6 publications and laidoff ~350 people.
(17% of their work force)
The reason to axe Max Linux was strickly because it was not one
of their cash cows. It was not losing money, but it did not make
enough to keep the others afloat.
Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know, because I'm taking
this a bit personally. I was a regular writer for them, and had just
started up a regular security column that I was really looking
forward to watching grow. Well atleast I still have my day job...
