Linux New Media, the world's leading Linux content provider, has announced the purchase of assets related to InfoStrada's Linux Magazine. Linux Magazine's readership will be merged into Linux New Media's North American flagship magazine, Linux Pro. This move highlights Linux Pro's rise as the fastest growing magazine in the rapidly expanding open source IT industry. Linux Pro, which offers an elegant blend of technical yet accessible articles on Linux and open source, has become a favorite of many IT professionals.
“Buying Linux Magazine assets is a logical step that helps accelerate our continued expansion in North America,” said Brian Osborn, CEO of Linux New Media USA, LLC. Osborn sees opportunities for a new generation of high-end, reader-focused magazines. “We continue to grow and flourish because we provide a unique editorial vision and deliver high-quality, innovative products. This acquisition will help us share that vision with a new community of readers."
With offices in six countries, Linux New Media publishes more than 30 magazines and websites and organizes industry events, including CeBIT Open Source and Brazil's LinuxPark conference series. In early 2007, Linux New Media opened its North American office in Lawrence, Kansas. Linux Pro continues to grow, with an expanding subscriber base and rapid sales at major newsstand outlets, including Barnes & Noble, Borders, and Hastings.
“Our international pool of editors, authors, websites, events, advertisers, and open source publications allows us to provide a premium information network for IT professionals,” said Osborn.
Linux Pro magazine is published monthly and includes Linux distributions on DVD. For more information, visit: http://www.linuxpromagazine.com.
