I find that Info World is the only trade rag that really takes FOSS 
seriously.  But they have a broader readership base _and_ advertising 
base than CIO magazine.

Forbes (which isn't a trade rag in the usual sense) laughs at FOSS but 
at the same time takes it seriously.

SAGE and the like aren't trade rags at all in the sense I mean, and 
they of course take it quite seriously.
