History

Originally, the site was owned by Andover.net, which was taken over by VA Linux Systems (which later changed into VA Software, and then SourceForge, Inc., now Geeknet). It was dedicated to providing news and services to the free and open source software community. The site reported 25 million hits in the first month of operation.

Linux.com suspended the publication of new articles in December 2008, but implied in an announcement on New Year's Day 2009 that publication would shortly resume after unspecified changes to the site; legal considerations were given as the reason why the anticipated changes were not clearly described.[1]

On March 3, 2009, the Linux Foundation announced that they will be taking over management of linux.com.[2]
