When reading the tenth edition of this Ubuntu community magazine, I felt 
more involved.

The cover article was about an ASUS EEE laptop running Xubuntu. That 
little clamshell was reviewed in a long article.

But the contents' shrunken images were somewhat unreadable!

The editorial foreshadowed an interview. Wherein an Ubuntu/Debian 
developer showed his messy desk!

Installing Linux Mint was illustrated.

Compiling from source looked technical!

Tux Paint was illustrated.

Video compression with AcidRip was illustrated.

A somewhat technical article was on installing and configuring Xubuntu.

An enthusiast's article described the history of independent game 
development. Then I installed one of five recommended chess applications!

An article favourably compared Linux to Microsoft applications.

The women's section was about team-building.

The youth page promoted a calculator, office suite and IRC client.

Foreshadowed was a podcast about a Linux conference.

A reader panned a software delivery service!

The question-and-answer session seemed helpful.

Readers showed off two very different desktop layouts.

The magazine ended by asking for reader input.
