Hello,

Regarding the conversion of the Red Hat Wide Open Magazine to an online
edition, does this mean the printed publication will no longer be
distributed?

Further, to date I have only received 1 copy of the magazine, the Premier
edition, and that was rather late as it arrived in May, not March as
advertised. It coincided with the release of FC2, while the magazine
actually came with the CD's for FC1, which made them virtually useless.

Moreover, what did I get for my $35 subscription? That's a rather hefty
price for one magazine!!

Regards,

Steven Erat
