    Great contents!
    Seems like the retransformation of digit has begun atlast(since last issue). Articles seem to be getting better from the august issue. So far so good. I feel that this issue will be better than all digit issues in the past 1 yr. Last issue was fantabulous, this issue 'seems' better as far as the preview is concerned.
    Looking fwd to it.

    Contents are good, but why DiGit is'nt giving out full GNU/Linux/BSD Distros anymore?

    Fedora Core 6 is almost ready (releasing on 11th OCT) can we expect it on November?(PLZ give a bootable install DVD this time).

    good contents but can anyone explain me why digit has included nero 7.2 when a nero 7.5 is out , digit should have given nero 7.5 reloaded . This is just wasting space many have demanded nero 7.5 reloded ( latest ) .

    Yeah you should give all the latest stuff.that's one reason i buy digit.Mag rocks but it's the cd/dvd contents which are not up the mark in the past 4 issues.Hope for some improvement in the essentials and internet sections.

    firefox alpha3 is not good enough,u should have given beta2.
