A quiet fortnight for Linux offered up the ideal opportunity for us to step back and think about some broader trends in the world of technology.

In the news, we looked at Microsoft’s attempts to regain traction following missteps with Windows 8 and in the mobile space, wondered whether we should simply give up on trying to make our systems secure at all, and discussed how Google is moving from knowing all that we do towards determining all that we can we think.

After your feedback, we talked with journalist and author Doug Hill about some of the issues that rarely get an airing in a technological society where every new change is automatically viewed as progress.

With the Software Freedom Conservancy leaping into a legal battle that coincidentally supports the MPAA/RIAA, and Linus’ employer and underlings seemingly looking to ease out the grumpy old coot, our news segment this show reflected the old adage that where there’s people, there’s politics.

After your feedback, we revisited the subject of self-hosted cloud products, kicking the tyres of ownCloud, Pydio and Seafile. Each has its positives, but did any match up to the standards set by Drive and Dropbox?

Time was when KDE looked like something created by a hyperactive child let loose with a box of crayons. Whilst still offering a befuddling array of configuration options, aesthetically it’s now all grown up – and actually surprisingly attractive. We kicked the tyres on a couple of recent KDE distros that aim to offer the user quite contrasting experiences.

Just why is proprietary GUI software often better than the FOSS alternatives? Hear our thoughts on this after our usual coverage of the news, your feedback and our excursion into KDE-land.

Last fortnight was dominated by two releases: the new Raspberry Pi 2, and the first Ubuntu mobile. With one of our number having got his hands on both of these, we report back on the Cray-like performance of the Pi, and how the Ubuntu phone could finally be a challenger to the legendary Wasp T12. Or not.

In the news, we talked about the sad demise of CrunchBang, the UK’s headlong rush into a surveillance state befitting our humble status as Airstrip One, a mysterious disappearing anti-FSF campaign, and much more. And with a first impressions of the Pi and a deep-dive into Ubuntu Touch topping and tailing your feedback, that’s the show. We hope you enjoy it.

Neither the weather nor a slickly marketed new Linux vulnerability can hold the Luddites back; like the Beast of Redmond, which features heavily in the News this show, we just keep on coming.

Changing the pace, Joe and Jesse went Off the Beaten Path to bring us a couple of FOSS applications that they frequently find useful; but we soon got back on track with all your Feedback.

Yomping ended, we settled down Over a Pint to discuss the impact that social media has had upon how we see the world and our fellow human beings. It’s broadened our outlook… hasn’t it?
