"At midnight last night, Imagine Media announced that it was closing the doors on Maximum Linux Magazine. Emmett Plant talks to some of their staff to find out the story...."

"Imagine Media, who also publishes MaximumPC and The Official Sega Dreamcast Magazine, created Maximum Linux to jump on the Linux bandwagon. While being a colorful and interesting magazine, many people in the Linux community shunned the magazine for not being technical enough to serve their needs...."

"Basically, they shut down six out of the twelve magazines here. Maximum Linux was doing fine, it wasn't a problem with the magazine at all, I believe it was turning a profit. Instead, they're taking the money from the magazines they pulled and putting it into the others to grow those properties. Basically, they're doing what's good for Imagine."
