Until September 2004 LinuxFocus was published every second month. These are the available issues:

LinuxFocus Article Index and Search with Google
We have categorized all our articles a bit and sorted them for you:

It takes some time for Google to update its database. The latest issue is therefore usually not included in the search.

Welcome to the LinuxFocus online magazine

Since the beginning of October we have switched to a new layout. It is now much easier to get to the articles and you can directly select in which language you want to read them. The previous pages of the different language sections are still available via the "Languages" box on the sidebar.

We have also changed our way of working. We will no longer publish in issues. Instead the articles will be published as soon as they are available. We hope that this will be more attractive to authors and readers alike.

It is a long time that we had articles from French or Spanish authors even though this magazine originally started with these two languages. We would really like to encourage you to write for LinuxFocus. It does not have to be a complicated subject. Often the simple ideas are most fun to write and read about.
