Perhaps it’s winter drawing in, but the news dominating the FLOSS world over the last fortnight has not been particularly sunny; we featured stories on security woes, Mozilla lows, and Debian blows this show.

Following the feedback section, we again caught up with Martin Wimpress, and talked about the reception received by the recently released Ubunbtu MATE 14.04 LTS version. We’ve been really positive about the whole project, but has it produced a distro you could live with until 2019? Listen on for our review.

Following a news segment that ranged from the enterprise right down to Mozilla’s plans for the lowly RPi gathering dust in your drawer, Jesse brought us his first impressions of a distro that aims to save aged hardware from becoming landfill.

After your feedback, we spun up Trisquel 7, the latest and greatest 100% libre distro to gain the FSF stamp of approval. But how did it match up to our more exacting standards? Listen on to find out.

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.

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.

Deftly sidestepping those seeking to inject some drama into the FOSS community, we continued our tradition of focusing upon genuine news; bringing you stories ranging from the very small world of the Internet of Things, through a win or two for our beloved Linux desktop, and right on up the stack to the apparent lack of widespread turmoil server-side following the Shellshock vulnerability.

After explaining why Joe was escaping – for now – his planned look at GALPon MiniNo, we ruminated over our impressions of this year’s OggCamp.

Following your Feedback, we spoke to Martin Wimpress from the MATE Desktop project. Martin had an awful lot of interesting things to say, and has plans for Ubuntu MATE that go far beyond what we typically hear developers propose. A huge thank you to Martin for spending time with us, and listen on to find out more.

Although the #bashpocalypse inevitably headlined, there was plenty of other News from around the FOSS world to discuss this show. So we did.

After a trip down memory lane with Paddy looking at a couple of BeOS-inspired distros in First Impressions, we dove into a bulging mailsack of Feedback, only coming up for air to be confronted with a distro review gone wrong. Thankfully, a couple of app choices by that distro proved to be quite inspired, and we think that you’ll like them too.

An interesting mix of News this show, ranging through a number of FOSS distro and application releases; a concerning report on Debian’s LTS strategy; a fresh push for the obsoleting of TCP/IP; and the inevitable discussion prompted by the GnomeOS cabal showing a little more leg.

Jesse gave us his First Impressions of Slackel Linux, whilst Paddy was handed yet another KDE-based distro for next time, in the shape of ZevenOS.

After a bumper bag of Feedback, we took a look at ownCloud. A cloud platform for the masses, or just a few drips held aloft on hot air? Listen on to find out.
