Imagine Publishing has recently been attempting to branch out from its traditional magazine fare with ‘bookazines,’ the somewhat clumsy portmanteau given to the company’s book-format publications which gather content from previous issues of its magazines. The latest of these is Linux Tips, Tricks Apps & Hacks, which takes themed material from the company’s Linux User & Developer magazine and collates them together for easy access.
As a regular contributor to Linux User & Developer, it’s little surprise to see some of my content find its way into the first volume of Linux Tips, Tricks Apps & Hacks. There’s my feature on how to fix a broken Linux installation from Linux User & Developer Issue 107 plus my bumper 10-page special on Ubuntu 12.10, comparing it to rival distributions on a range of subjects from usability to community engagement, which first appeared in Linux User & Developer Issue 119. A few other pieces of mine, including distribution reviews, also appear between the covers.
Sadly for my bank balance, republication such as this does not carry with it an additional fee – but it’s always nice to see my work reaching a new audience, and for those who missed the features the first time round Linux Tips, Tricks Apps & Hacks provides a handy way to catch up on matters.
