Waiting for the June issue to hit newsstands.

Start saving (Yeah!)...Rs. 200 issue for the uninformed! Just to be clear, do the subscribers get the movie DVD for free?

umm... pretty good I'd say, although my wish isn't fulfilled!!
I presume Don is free for subscribers. Good things this time is Wiki pack, Ubuntu, Mag contents like do it yourself, Fast track is good too. I guess this is the first time Digit guys paid a little attention to what most of us have demanded. And now the big question !!

When will the subscribers get their mags, first week or the last week ??

Yes, subscribers get the Don DVD free. Just to be clear, we're in no mood to burn our fingers the way we did in December 2005.
 
people were talking of 3-4 dvds, what the hell single dl dvd:confused: , great digit team after so much oppression still you are shipping don dvd:mad: ,

so I suppose this mag is priced at regular and not 200/- for no reason.

ubuntu dvd would have been better than cd.

Digit would be giving DL DVD each month, but I hope that the price is going to be the same each month (Rs.125/-)

why you doubt, when it is possible for other mags in 100 bucks, here its still 125:twisted:
