This podcast marked our first anniversary, but rather than cutting things short and disappearing down the pub, we brought you a veritable feast of a show.
Kicking off with all the news that matters, we moved on to give you a first impression of a lightweight Spanish distro. After your feedback, for our main feature we looked at a BSD that’s aiming to make life easier for the regular desktop user. Rounding things off, we discussed another recent notable anniversary – that of Ubuntu turning ten years old – and ruminated on what Canonical has brought to the Linux world over the last decade, and whether their influence is set to continue.
Head on over to our website for full show notes with links to everything we talked about, and for an opportunity to comment.
Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who has listened and supported us over the last year – the reception the show has received has been nothing short of fantastic. We’ll be doing it all again in two weeks time, and look forward to your company.
