The May 2004 issue of Linux Magazine (http://www.linux-mag.com) will be
available on newsstands beginning April 13th.
May's feature stories introduce Subversion 1.0, take an in-depth look
at open role-playing games, and review the state of Linux on the
PowerPC processor architecture.
In addition, the May issue of Linux Magazine adds two new monthly
columns: Law student and MBA Nicholas Well's "On the Docket" focuses on
legal issues, such as vendor indemnity and flavors of open source
licenses, while MySQL guru Jeremy Zawodny pens "Advanced MySQL". The
new columns join Randal Schwartz's clever "Perls of Wisdom", Jerry
Peek's instructive "Power Tools", Rod Smith's system administration
"Guru Guidance", and more than eight other columns focused on putting
Linux to work.
A table of contents appears below.
Back issues of Linux Magazine are available for free (registration not

newsstands in all major book and news retailers.
