If Hugh Jampton offers to show his column, run away screaming. He may even photograph it for the next RISC World.

I thought it was awful. It consisted mainly of advertisements or segments of APDL's/VA's/Allagata's other products masqurading as articles, some screenshots of some freeware, and a dire and very niche free pieces of software. The production was uninspiring, as was the style. Aaron's bonzai-rant pretending to be editorial was amusing though, but for all the wrong reasons.

It's about 55MB big, and this includes to include entire copies of APDL's website in the "Adverts" section. I can see why only APDL and Allagata advertise - they most likely get it for free, and nobody else would advertise as you have to actually go into a dedicated section of the magazine to find them - which readers in their right mind would bother with them?

Given it's so tiny, I'm surprised they don't just stop burning CDs and allow subscribers to view it via their website.

Certainly something I will be avoiding, and I'm thankful that RISC World gave me the oppertunity to discover this before I might have parted with my cash.
