I've had a chance to take look at the current (July 2009) issue, and it's a chock-filled 45 pages! A few highlights that caught my eye at first glance: There's a very informative article on graphic file formats which is a must read for all artists and photographers. In addition, there's a terrific article on PCLinuxOS and digital photography. For new users, there's a piece on how to utilize the Update Notifier app to help keep your PCLinuxOS system current and up-to-date.
And, the folks at the magazine were kind enough to invite me along as a contributor. Each month, PCLinuxOS Magazine will have a special Linux version of my Double Take cartoon (distributed nationally by Georgetoon.com).
The above image is a thumbnail teaser of the cartoon running in this month's edition. To see the entire cartoon, simply download the magazine at http://www.pclosmag.
The official announcement is as follows:
