I've updated the title.

Unfortunately, we haven't had any control over this. It was a Future publishing decision, and includes 43 magazines in addition to Linux Format. Our marketing overlords decided to make it UK only for reasons we mere mortals working on the magazine couldn't possibly understand. I will, however, pass your comments up the chain of command and hopefully they'll decide to open it up more in the future.

I hate Google Play, but I

I hate Google Play, but I envy those who can take up this offer. They'd be fools not to.

When choosing which distro to put on my new lappy, I went with Ubuntu (but with Cinnamon and Nemo) because "can buy Linux Format from USC" helped make the "pro" column slightly heavier than the "con" column. $6.99's not much to pay (actually, it might be loads, I have no idea how much a dollar is worth but it sounds fairly cheap).

(I'm too lazy to set up a proxy for Google Play or to get USC running in another distro)
