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.

Munich rowing back from Linux? Maybe not, but the story again raises the question of why Linux is so poorly represented in desktop market share, and we offered some opinions during the News segment.

Joe gave us his First Impressions of AUSTRUMI Linux, whilst Jesse was handed another Slackware-based distro for next time.

After your Feedback, we took a look at the Blackbox, Fluxbox, Hackedbox and Openbox window managers, before rounding off the show talking about a console text editor that respects your existing muscle memory.

In the News this show, the UK’s privacy tsar gives a clean bill of health to Ubuntu’s Shopping Lens; ‘BadUSB’ proves to actually be really rather bad; two cloud companies show they’re thinking about the children; and more FOSS wins. We also talked about new chips from IBM, Intel and NVIDIA.

Paddy gave us his First Impressions of MEPIS, whilst DistroWatch’s Random Button handed Joe the Slackware-based AUSTRUMI to look at next time.

After your Feedback, we talked with Jonathan Nadeau about the new release of his Sonar GNU/Linux distro, and the state of Linux accessibility in general.

And we rounded things off with Jesse telling us about Hugin, which is one of his favourite free software photo manipulation tools.

In the News this show, openSUSE bringing out a rolling release; two initiatives from the EFF; several apparent wins for the FOSS community; and a storm in a teacup over Android security, albeit one that illustrates a valid underlying point.

Jesse took a look at RISC OS on the Raspberry Pi in First Impressions, and Paddy caught the bullet of another KDE distro for next time.

After a few words about OggCamp and your Feedback, we spun up Zorin OS 9, a distro that promises much for the Windows refugee. How does it deliver?

We ended the show Over a Pint, talking about how much we really can trust our software – even when the source code is available.
