A while ago I made a comment that CMP is notorous for taking a good
publication and run it down for whatever reasons I don't understand at
downunder - for example, BYTE and not WDJ/WDM.

It appears the magazine is no longer in print version and the articles are
really good quality stuff anymore.
Does anyone know the real reasons behind them?  Ron Burk was the chief
editor before...

Simple: it wasn't selling enough. MSDN has the .NET world sewn up, CUJ has the
C++ world sewn up, and DDJ has all the general-purpose stuff sewn up (and all
the
readers).

It's particularly bad for me, since I had 8 articles and 15 Tech Tips in WDM in
2003. Maybe it was my fault ... ;(
