From a correspondent in Bath. PC Answers is being unplugged.

“Farewell to Future’s last publication that was actually of any use to computing beginners; PCA was unafraid to recommend newbies try Free/Open Source software as viable alternatives  – the non-tech-savvy are now abandoned to official Windows publications, a sterile environment where the iPod is pronounced “Zune” and bloatware forces constant hardware upgrades… Sad.”

The Future Intranet announced: “Following a strategic review of our PC portfolio, we’re sorry to announce that we’ve taken the difficult decision to close PC Answers. The magazine on sale in October will be the final issue.The team have done an excellent job in creating a compelling, well-followed magazine, which makes this decision even harder. …

“We’re actively seeking other opportunities for the four members of staff affected by PC Answer‘s closure. I’d like to thank them for their great work over a number of years. “
