This issue marks the end of an era, the final self-contained print issue of "COMPUTE!'s Gazette". It's not the end: after a "summer break" it reappears as a supplement in "COMPUTE" (losing the exclamation point) until 1994, where it becomes a disk-only "magazine" for a bit over a year, and then ends.
The Editor's Notes has some responses from the reader's survey including
C'mon guys, how am I gonna brag at the user group if you don't print some of my ideas, which are better than some I've seen in your mag? I'll give you one more decade, then I ain't gonna renew my subscription.I like the optimism! On the other hand, the Notes' close of "See you next month." rings sad and is factually untrue.
