This is a COMPLETE bibliography of the Linux Journal (CODEN LIJOFX, ISSN 1075-3583), which began publishing in March 1994.

Author Comments:
With a few exceptions during its first year, the journal has appeared monthly. It is unusual in that there are not separate volume and issue numbers; each issue is numbered sequentially without regard to year boundaries, so that issue number is recorded as a volume number in the entries below.
The initial entries in this bibliography at version 1.00 were derived entirely from data at the journal's World Wide Web site:
Unfortunately, that data lacks article page numbers. This deficiency will be remedied if alternate sources of bibliographic information for this journal can be found. It is not covered in the Compendex or OCLC Content1st databases.
Although common usage refers to the operating system as ``Linux'' (from Linus (Torvalds) and Minix, a UNIX-like operating system developed by Andrew S. Tanenbaum), the bulk of the source code used to create a complete running system comes from the Free Software Foundation's GNU Project (GNU is Not UNIX), so the system is more properly referred to as the ``GNU system with the Linux kernel'', or GNU/Linux for short.
From the GNU jargon file, the 24-Jul-1996 edition of the online form of the New Hacker's Dictionary, by Eric Raymond and Guy L. Steele, Jr., second edition, MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, USA, 1993, ISBN 0-262-18154-1, we cite this entry:
:Linux:: /lee'nuhks/ or /li'nuks/, *not* /li:'nuhks/ /n./ The free Unix workalike created by Linus Torvalds and friends starting about 1990 (the pronunciation /lee'nuhks/ is preferred because the name `Linus' has an /ee/ sound in Swedish). This may be the most remarkable hacker project in history — an entire clone of Unix for 386, 486 and Pentium micros, distributed for free with sources over the net (ports to Alpha and Sparc-based machines are underway). This is what GNU aimed to be, but the Free Software Foundation has not (as of early 1996) produced the kernel to go with its Unix toolset (which Linux uses). Other, similar efforts like FreeBSD and NetBSD have been much less successful. The secret of Linux's success seems to be that Linus worked much harder early on to keep the development process open and recruit other hackers, creating a snowball effect.
