    Well not exactly happy with the contents...
    Fedora core 3 was given this month by LFY ...would have been much better with mandrake...

    Musicmatch jukebox 10 was out weeks ago still mmjb 9 included in CD

    AVG 7 Free Edition not included...

    AutopatcherXP not included (since it was corrupt last time)..

    Great for the DVD list provided.
    Wish you do provide this info well before it is for sale :lol:

    Please dont repeat any software with every issue.
    So that space can utilized for some useful software :idea:

    But you keep repeating same stuff it will discourage regular buyers from buying every magazine

    Please, do announce your upcoming magazine/DVD/CD earlier like this in future. Preferably as earlier the better :!: 8)

    But remember, people will find faults :!: :)
    They always do, no matter how hard you try.
    Impossible to satisfy all. But at least, make it known as to what
    Digit is trying to target, what kind of audience. Then you should go ahead with it. That section of people will always buy it anyway.
    Hopefully Digit team is not confused :? as to that :!: :twisted:

    Salut to Byte!
