There’s a growing trend for distros to seek partnerships with hardware vendors, and this show we looked at the fruits of one such deal. After reviewing two laptops from a UK company that ship with Ubuntu MATE pre-installed, we wondered how beneficial this approach really could be in helping foster the greater adoption of Linux we all want to see.

Head on over to our website for full show notes with links to everything we talked about, segment timestamps, and for an opportunity to comment or support the show.

HPR1754: D7? Why Seven?

without comments

In this episode I respond to one of the community-requested topics ("Music Theory") and try to explain what seventh chords are and why they are used. Below are some of the terms that I use in the course of the discussion. Interval: The distance between two pitches (sounded either consecutively or simultaneously) Consonance: Relatively stable sound between two or more pitches Dissonance: Relatively unstable sound between two or more pitches. Dissonance often needs a "resolution" to consonance Chord: three or more notes sounded together Chord progression: a succession of chords Triad: a chord with 3 pitches, the adjacent pitches separated by the interval of the 3rd. Seventh chord: a chord with 4 pitches, the adjacent pitches separated by the interval of the 3rd. Tonality: harmonic system that governs the use of major and minor keys Tonic: the central tone of a piece of music Mode: major or minor [e.g. Symphony no. 5 in C minor] Modulation: the process of changing keys within a piece of music Scale: Ascending or descending series of notes that define a key or tonality, with a specific arrangements of half-steps and whole-steps. Major and Minor scales are most common in Western music Free public-domain music reference book: Music Notation and Terminology by Karl Wilson Gehrkens: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/19499 (see ch. 18) Free Online Music Dictionary: http://dictionary.onmusic.org/
