I'm very saddened by the news. And yet, LJ lived for two years beyond its original obituary.
Here's what I had to say then, all of which still applies: https://lerner.co.il/2017/12/01/sad-day-end-linux-journal-2/
I'm sad to see it go, I had fond memories of reading it from when I was a beginner learning systems administration. But over time the articles became less and less relevant to me, and while I remained subscribed I rarely read the magazine.
Even after LJ went online-only I kept the subscription going because I didn't want to lose a publication that was so focused on something that is so important to me, and hopefully, all of us: Pure Linux and cool new open source software.
Best wishes to Kyle and the rest of the team and thanks for giving it another go!!!
I wish someone can keep site read-only for years to come, still there are gems in those articles and could be hit by google.
