"Linux Gazette...making Linux just a little more fun!"

[This page was written sometime before June 1999 by LG's then-Editor Marjorie Richardson.]

Statement of Purpose

Linux Gazette, a member of the Linux Documentation Project, is an on-line WWW publication that is dedicated to two simple ideas:

The basic idea behind these two concepts is that Linux is one cool OS, whose price for admission is a willingness to read, learn, tinker (aka, hack!), and then share your experiences. The Gazette is a compilation of basic tips, tricks, suggestions, ideas and short articles about Linux designed to make using Linux fun and easy. LG began as a personal project of John M. Fisk, and grew to include contributions freely provided by a growing number of authors. Linux Journal is now publishing the Gazette using material contributed by outside authors (note to potential authors). Without these authors there would not be a Gazette, and I thank them all. Drop a note to the author of anything that you find helpful or instructive -- the author's e-mail address is included for this very purpose.

Thanks to Matt Welsh and Greg Hankins of the Linux Documentation Project, for graciously bringing the Linux Gazette under the auspices of the LDP. The material included in these documents is covered by a designedly liberal copyright. For information regarding copying and distribution of this material read the Copying License.

A special thanks to Michael J. Hammel, our Graphics Muse, for the wonderful new logo designed using the GIMP.

Thanks to SSC, we now have our own domain name: linuxgazette.com.

Have fun!
