"We regret the passing of these much-loved news outlets and offer condolences to all our friends who have been writing for them. But don't despair too much. At least some of their content will continue as part of the "parent" ITWorld site."

"On Monday, March 12, LinuxWorld writers received a communique from editor in chief Kathy Badertscher that said, "It is with great disappointment, displeasure, nausea, etc. that I must tell you that ITworld is shutting down LinuxWorld.com."

"Yep. You read correctly. Because of the economy and everything else, ITw could no longer support our endeavors to become one of the best Linux sites. Thankfully JavaWorld will be retained, but UnixInsider also becomes a casualty. A bit of OK news is that LinuxWorld.com will live on in an abridged fashion on ITw. However, things will never be the same, and I know we all know that, but we'll do the best we can. There's much more to say, but I'm afraid an email can't do it justice."
