Private Internet Access creator, London Trust Media, acquires Linux Journal

Posted on Jan 1, 2018 by PIA Team

To our beloved customers,

Over the years, with your help, we have supported many worthy projects and events in the open source space. At the beginning of December, Carlie Fairchild posted a farewell to the Linux community in a post titled “Linux Journal Ceases Publication.” We know that some of our users may have also read this message, given the strong overlap between those that care about privacy and those that care about freedom and open source software. Needless to say, upon reading the news, we immediately reached out to see how we could help.

Many members of our team have been Linux Journal readers for years – even since before they worked with Private Internet Access. We truly believe that Linux Journal needs to be there to chronicle our journey into a more open future. Private Internet Access is proud to announce that our parent company, LTM, has acquired Linux Journal. 2018 is going to be a big year for Linux – and we will continue to play our part in facilitating this.

Linux Journal will join the LTM family alongside Private Internet Access and many others. Please feel free to view the full list of companies in the LTM family on our website at Private Internet Access will always continue to provide for the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community.

Private Internet Access will always continue to provide for the FOSS community.

Together, we will change the world.

    I purchased pia vpn subscription because I saw pia is a sponsor of linux mint, which is my favourite distro. And with this news I’m so happy with my decision :-)
