the free softare hackers are usually quite well informed
about all the issues, infos around free software.
IMO a magazine should more focus on reaching the typical
users (who read magazines) and provide them with solid
information about free software.
The FSM should be an instrument to communicate to others
rather then to ourselves.

A free software magazine is missing since all the Linux
magazines turn to proprietary products more and more.
Most appear not capable to explain free software, some
authors even have not understood the concept.
